The Street of Adventure free pdf Excerpt from The Street of Adventure This novel of journalistic life in London was written ten years ago. To me, and to those characters in the book who still survive, that seems a life-time back. Since then I have seen two wars - the Balkan war which was the storm-cloud in Europe heralding the universal deluge, and the Great War itself which has left the world bleeding from many wounds, and the soul of the world stricken by the remembrance of millions of dead boys, and of untold agonies, brutalities, abominations, in those slaughter fields where civilization was submerged. The Street of Adventure which I portrayed in this tale was (though none of us guessed) only a narrow alley-way leading to an adventure so terrific in its melodrama that it annihilated the journalistic "scoop" and newspaper competition in England (for all journals were under military law and no more than bulletins of official news) and all the traditions, customs, and purpose of journalistic life. Those young newspaper men of whom I write in this book regarded the work as a peep-show of which they were critics and onlookers- but when the War came they found that they could no longer be aloof from life, nor go to its pageantry and its drama with Press tickets for the "show" and a cynical amusement at the folly of human nature. They became part of the pageant, actors in the drama. They were part .of that pageantry of English youth which tramped up the roads of war to the Ypres salient and the Somme battlefields.
