Seven Apples recently reviewed Lady Almina and the Real Downton Abbey by the Countess of Carnarvon for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012. Here’s an excerpt:
The author also covers the actual events of World War I, using both the experiences of the soldiers turned Highclere patients (her description of David Campbell’s experiences at Gallipoli was particularly harrowing) and the experiences of the Carnarvon family (Aubrey Herbert, her husband’s younger half-brother, played an important diplomatic role). This part is clearly well-researched and the descriptions are extremely powerful.
