Set in the summer of 1914 the main hero, Mr. Britling, is an eccentric writer whose days are spent at luxurious house parties socialising with a lot of international guests. When he bores of these careless days of nothing to do except eat, drink and be merry he can travel abroad where his mistress is patiently waiting for him to stop by. However, the clouds of war have started to set in as Germany marches into Belgium and Europe is no longer the safe and fun haven that it once was. It is soon brought home to Mr. Britling that war is not just an inconvenience to his lifestyle but also a danger to the people he loves. What can he do, though? All he's ever done is write, travel or attend parties; surely the world needs someone who has done more than that?Hide synopsis

For Mr Britling, eccentric and vivacious writer, the summer of 1914 consisted of long, hot days and luxurious house parties with a host of international guests to entertain him. And when he tired of this, he hopped across the channel where his devoted mistress was patiently waiting. But all this was about to change as Germany began marching into Belgium and Europe no longer provided the easy diversion he had so enjoyed. Mr Britling soon came to realise that this war was more than simply an inconvenience, and was a dangerous threat to those he loved. But all he could do was sit at home and wait.
