Nting the conflicted inner life of a world at war Woodruff s account of his experiences preceding and leading through World War II serves well to remind the reader of several issues of grave importance the first being Man s desperation to hold together some semblance of beauty in the face of such gliness and the second ironically being Man s tendency to paint faux beauty across the cannibal s face in order to justify the atrocity of war Woodruff helps PBS Bargaining Across Borders us to remember how blind nationalistic fervor can makes and reminds World Religions Demystified us of the rampant danger inherent therein Truthfully only those of this generation can truthfully do this reminding and they are fadingickly Thankfully even as those who walked through the darkness of world war are leaving this place the accounts of their lives remainThis is one account I will recommend without hesitation William Woodruff the historian who died in September 2008 wrote two surprise best sellers in his 80s The Road to Nab End and this book Beyond Nab End the second part of his personal memoir This is very readable book chronicling the time from when he hitched to London during the depression worked in a foundry developing his political ideas became educated through the WEA and on to Oxford where his studies were eventually disrupted by the second world war and where he also spent time pre war travelling in Belgium and Germany It is a fascinating book to read very evocative of it s times and it Germany It is a fascinating book to read very evocative of it s times and it difficult to put down An exceptional autobiography Woodruff s storytelling voice is superb and his recreation of pre and post World War II England is vivid I ll admit that the book was dry at points but overall Beyond Nab End is extremely engaging and provides a fitting conclusion to Woodruff s journey from a young North Englander in the working class to an Oxford educated man An excellent readin a voice still clear and present all these years on What a wonderful writer this historian is it makes you think about all the other young people like my father in law who left school early through circumstances I look forward to reading William Woodruff s other books A couple of my fave otes from this one As a constant visitor to the uotes from this one As a constant visitor to the and a strong supporter of the League of Nations he Sir Alfred Zimmern always had first hand knowledge of the growing political crisis He sed to say If children can decide how they will act together why can t we As I stood among the showers of sparks and watched the workers toil I couldn t help wondering how a sand rat could sweat his guts out and be paid very little for it whereas if you studied workers as I was doing you did very well The farther one got away from working with one s hands the work that made the wealth of nations that gave For Petes Sake (Piper Cove Chronicles us our daily bread the better off one was I had been broughtp to believe that hard manual work paid it didn t None of the men I was look.
