Home on leave from the Second World War, HE Bates took solace in the English countryside. His lyrical evocation of its pear blossom, gardens and old stone cottages are dramatically interspersed with stories of battle, and beautifully illustrated by CF Tunnicliffe’s woodcuts. Knowing the war will change everything, and with no desire to return to the old, feudalistic rural life, he asks ‘Have we anything to put in its place?’
