The book that inspired the classic film starring Elizabeth Taylor, National Velvet is a true classic of print and screen.

Night was the same as day in the tunnels; the electric light was always on, and with the morning no daylight crept in to alter it. The orderly called her at half-past six and she took her "clients" to a barracks in the suburbs of Verdun, where Russian prisoners "liberated" from Germany crowded and jostled to see her from behind the bars of the barrack square, like wild animals in a cage. Armed sentries paced backwards and forwards across the gateway to the yard. As it came on to snow a French soldier came out of a guardroom and invited her in by the fire.

Enid Bagnold (1889 - 1981) was a British author and playwright. Her account of her experience as a nurse during the First World War, Diary Without Dates (1917) was so critical of hospital administration that the military authorities arranged for her dismissal. Determined to help the war effort she went to France and worked as a volunteer driver. Later she wrote about this in The Happy Foreigner (1920), contrasting the duties and demands of the heroine's external life, with the freedom and excitement of her internal life during a whirl-wind romance with a French officer. Her next novel, The Difficulty of Getting Married (1924) was highly acclaimed, as was National Velvet (1935) for which she is best known. It tells the story of a girl, Velvet Brown, who attempts to ride her horse to victory in the Grand National steeplechase. In 1944, the novel was made into a highly successful film with Elizabeth Taylor. Other novels include The Squire (1937) and The Loved and Envied (1951).
