My Boy Jack, Paperback / softback Book


The tragic story of how Rudyard Kipling sent his son to his death in the First World War.

David Haig's acclaimed stageplay was filmed for television in 2007, with Daniel Radcliffe as Jack and the author himself as Kipling. The year is 1913 and war with Germany is imminent.

Rudyard Kipling's determination to send his severely short sighted son to war triggers a bitter family conflict which leaves Britain's renowned patriot devastated by the warring of his own greatest passions: his love for children above all his own and his devotion to King and Country.
