Philip Gibbs

a.k.a. Sir Philip Gibbs

Author Code: EPGX

Born: May 1, 1877 - London, England

Died: Mar. 10, 1962 - Godalming, Surrey, England

Educated primarily by his father, Gibbs was determined to be a writer from an early age. In 1894, he published his first article in the Daily Chronicle and subsequently worked for them as a journalist. In 1899, he published his first book, Founders of the Empire. In 1902, he became the literary editor of the Daily Mail. When the First World War broke out, Gibbs went to the Western Front as a war correspondent, but was subsequently arrested and sent back to England when he refused to be censored. He later grudgingly agreed to censorship and worked for both the Daily Chronicle and the Daily Telegraph. During the war, Gibbs produced a number of books on the struggle from his perspective as a war correspondent. In 1920, he published perhaps his finest work, Now It Can Be Told, which reached number one on the non-fiction best-seller list. He was also knighted that year. During World War II, Gibbs worked as a foreign reporter for the Daily Sketch and spent some time in America with the Ministry of Information. Following the war, he retired from journalism due to failing eyesight, but he continued to publish. His works include The Street of Adventure (1909), Intellectual Mansions (1910), The Soul of the War (1915), The Battle of the Somme (1917), From Bapaume to Passchendale (1918), The Realities of War (1920), Adventures in Journalism (1923), Since Then (1930), European Journey (1934), England Speaks (1935), Ordeal in England (1937), Across the Frontiers (1938), The Pageant of the Years (1946), Crowded Company (1948) and Life's Adventure (1957).
