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.
