''In his brief, engrossing eyewitness-to-history-style memoir, An Adventure in 1914, American lawyer T. Tileston Wells recounts his experience in Europe at the outbreak of World War I. His recollections are fleshed out and amplified for contemporary readers by way of an introduction and numerous historical notes by his great-grandson, Christopher Kelly....An Adventure in 1914 is a concise and vivid snapshot of an era and of events that have too often been overshadowed by more recent wars.''
''A charming memoir of an American family holiday in Europe just as WW1 breaks out. Beautifully edited & illustrated.'' --Andrew Roberts, author of Napoleon the Great and many other books
From the Author
An Adventure in 1914 is, by far. my most personal book. It contains and was inspired by a memoir written by my great-grandfather, Thomas Tileston Wells over one hundred years ago. He was a New York lawyer who was traveling through Europe with his wife and two children when World War I broke out. He wrote about the impact of the war on his family and on ordinary people.
