H. N. Brailsford

a.k.a. Henry Noel Brailsford

Author Code: EHNB

Born: Dec. 25, 1873 - Mirfield, Yorkshire, England

Died: Mar. 23, 1958 - London, England

Educated at Dundee High School and the University of Glasgow, Brailsford received his Master's degree in 1894 and was soon after employed as an assistant lecturer. He became involved in socialist politics during the 1895 General Election and by 1897 he had left his academic career behind for one in journalism. That year he joined the Philhellenic Legion, a volunteer force fighting for the Greeks against the Turks, and actually saw action which gave him material for his novel, The Broom of the War God (1898). He was then hired by the Manchester Guardian to cover the troubles on Crete, afterwards becoming their Paris correspondent. Over the next decade he worked for The Morning Leader and the London Echo, both left-wing newspapers. In 1905, he returned to the Guardian as a leader writer. In 1907, he joined the Labour Party and in 1909 helped to found the Men's League for Women's Suffrage with his friend Henry Nevinson. During the First World War, Brailsford adopted an anti-war stance and was very active in his writing, producing a number of works during the period. Following his defeat in the 1918 General Election, he toured Europe, visiting the defeated countries and expressing his opposition to the terms of the Treaty of Versailles. In 1922, he became the editor of The New Leader and for a time was highly successful, but his extreme views led to his dismissal in 1926. In 1931, Brailsford joined the newly-formed Socialist League. Brailsford was one of the most prolific left-wing writer of the 20th century, contributing articles to every major leftist journal and newspaper. During the Second World War, he wrote for the New Statesman and also broadcast for the BBC. He married Evamaria Perlmann, a German refugee, in 1944. He retired from journalism in 1946. His many works include Macedonia (1906), Adventures in Prose (1911), Shelley, Godwin and His Circle (1913), War of Steel and Gold (1914), Origins of the Great War (1914), A League of Nations (1917), After the Peace (1920), How the Soviets Work (1927), Rebel India (1931), Property or Peace?(1934), Why Capitalism Means War (1938) and Our Settlement With Germany (1944).
