Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was not yet 25 when he burst onto the literary scene in London, where his stories of Anglo-Indian life made him an instant celebrity. Rudyard Kipling was the first English writer to win the Nobel Prize (not the Pulitzer) for literature, in 1907. Kipling is a master of the language. His writing is balanced and fluid. Born in India in 1865 to an upper-class military family, he spent his early years in Britain and India and achieved his initial success as a reporter in India. He traveled widely and visited the U.S. a number of times, eventually building a house in Vermont. A restless wanderer, he ultimately settled in Sussex, only to have his world tumble into ruins with the death of his son in World War I. Kipling is very popular for his adult and children's stories and poems. Witty, profound, wildly funny, acerbic and occasionally savage, Rudyard Kipling's writings continue to delight readers of all ages. Here are the chapters included inside the book: ★ An Observation Post ★ The Line that Never Sleeps ★ Farm Life amidst War ★ A City and Woman ★ Trenches ★ Supports and Reserves
