As British soldiers fought their own deserting countrymen, and rebel Americans came face to face with faithful citizens, the American War of Independence proved to be the ultimate test of loyalty. And perhaps never more so than for Sergeant Lamb - a man who having escaped imprisonment to return to his own lines found his mistress and daughter had changed their allegiance to Lord Cornwallis, Lamb's commanding officer. AUTHBIO: Robert Graves was a prolific writer and turned his hand to essays, translations, historical works, novels and short stories. During his lifetime he was known for his highly unorthodox and individual views, in particular on religion, but it was for his poetry that he most wished to be remembered. Ranked among the twelve poets of the Great War, Graves' verse is marked for its intensity and fervent passion.
