Eliot Warburton was born on January 24th 1896 in Middleborough Kentucky, grew up in England and served in Royal Horse Artillery Regiment where he saw action in many of the notorious battles of World War I including Gallipoli, and the infamous trench warfare of the Somme, Vimy Ridge and Paschendaele. He was wounded three times and twice received the Military Cross medal for Valor. After the War, he served in Military Intelligence in Germany where he met his wife Mary Louise Thompson from Anniston, Alabama and later moved to civilian life and became managing director of Vick Chemical UK. When the Second World War broke out, he again resumed active service but was transferred to the UKs War Office for his expertise in advertising and propaganda, and he was later posted to Canada to promote the War effort there. At the end of the war he returned to England and became the managing director of William R. Warner & Co, the pharmaceutical company in the UK and Europe, that later became part of Pfizer. This book contains not only a biography of Eliot drawing from diaries and historical records, but over half of the book is dedicated to his first-hand observations from when he was trapped in Germany as a teenager as WWI was declared and Germany mobilized, to his extensive travels through Europe and US in the 1920s and later, with his Intelligence trained eye for detail and a poets heart for expression. This book will be interest to historians of the early twentieth century and anyone who enjoys the story of a remarkable man.
