Nothing To Do But Serve: British Officers And Their Servants In The First World War
West Point Press
Blake McGready graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2013 with a degree in history. Blake was inspired to study soldier-servants in the war through the writing of J.R.R. Tolkien, who served in the British Army and used the batman-officer relationship to inform his writing and express a sense of deep camaraderie between characters in his stories.
