The fourth volume of Kipling's letters takes the story of his life from the end of the Edwardian era through the Great War. The years just before the war saw the publication of "Rewards and Fairies" and "Songs from Books". During the war he published no new fiction but only the work he did as war correspondent and propagandist, including "France at War", "The Fringes of the Fleet", and "The Eyes of Asia". In 1915, his only son, John, was killed. Kipling's last volume of poems, "The Years Between" (1919), embodies the suffering and bitterness of these years.
