Love, War and the End of Empire

An engrossing story of passion and exploration that traces the end of empire and the stirring of a new world order. John Auden was a pioneering geologist of the Himalayas. Michael Spender was the first to draw a detailed map of the North Face of Mount Everest.

While their younger brothers - W. H. Auden and Stephen Spender - achieved literary fame, they vied for a place on an expedition that would finally conquer Everest.

To this rivalry was added another: their shared love for a painter named Nancy Sharp. Her choice would determine each man's wartime loyalties. From Calcutta to pre-war London to Everest itself, The Last Englishmen tracks a generation obsessed with a romantic ideal.

With a cast including writers, artists, political rogues and spies, this is narrative history at its most engaging and illuminating. 'Wholly original... It wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that there is something Tolstoyan to Baker's vast project...

Remarkable' Neel Mukherjee `An exuberant, scene-changing, shapeshifting group biography' Spectator
