Now I haven't read anything by Warner, and I might be doing him a disservice, but I imagine he wasn't the most scintillating of writers, and said book might anyway have been superceded by Tony Lewis's offering of 1987. Has anyone read anything by him, and is his stuff worth tracking down?
I have read it also, but many years ago and I can remember it was nothing special. I also read his account of the 1903/04 Ashes tour, and I really enjoyed it
