About Alan Alexander Milne

Alan Alexander Milne (January 18, 1882 – January 31, 1956), sometimes known as A. A. Milne, was a British writer, ideal recognized for his books about the teddy bear, Winnie-the-Pooh, and for numerous children's poems. Milne was a noted author, basically as a playwright, before the big success of Pooh overshadowed all his past function.
Biography
audiobook
Milne was born in Scotland but raised in London at Henley Home, a tiny private school run by his dad, John V. Milne. One of his teachers was H. G. Wells. He attended Westminster School and Trinity College, Cambridge where he studied on a mathematics scholarship. While there, he edited and wrote for Granta, a student magazine. He collaborated with his brother Kenneth and their articles appeared over the initials AKM. Milne's function came to the attention of the leading British humour magazine Punch, where Milne was to become a contributor and later assistant editor of Punch.

Milne joined the British Army in World War I and served as an officer in the Signal Corps. After the war, he wrote a denunciation of war titled Peace with Honour (1934), which he retracted somewhat with 1940's War with Honour). During World War II, Milne was the most prominent critics of English comic author P.G. Wodehouse, who was grabbed at his nation house in France by the Nazis and imprisoned for a year. Wodehouse prepared radio broadcasts about his internment, which were broadcast from Berlin. Although the lighthearted broadcasts produced fun of the Germans, Milne accused Wodehouse of committing an act of near treason by cooperating with his country's enemy. Wodehouse got some revenge by creating fatuous parodies of the Christopher Robin poems in a few of his later stories.

During World War II he was Captain of the Homeguard in Hartfield & Forrest Row insisting on being plain 'Mr Milne' to the members of his platoon.

Additionally during World War II, his house was destroyed in an air raid.

Milne wedded Dorothy De Selincourt in 1913, and their just son, Christopher Robin, was born in 1920. In 1925, Milne purchased a nation house, Cotchford Farm, in Hartfield, East Sussex. He retired to the farm after a stroke and mind operation in 1952 left him an invalid.
