A Hobbit, A Wardrobe, and a Great War
Joseph Loconte talked about his book, A Hobbit, a Wardrobe, and a Great War: How J.R.R. Tolkien and C.S. Lewis Rediscovered Faith, Friendship, and Heroism in the Cataclysm of 1914-1918, about the impact of World War I on writers J.R.R. Tolkein and C.S. Lewis, who were friends and fought in the war. In his book, Professor Loconte argues that the war deepened the writers' religious beliefs and ultimately led to the books they are both famous for. close
