Frodo and the Great War

This is a very interesting blog post on a paper by John Garth. I have never seen or heard of this paper before, but given what the author of the blog is saying, I'd like to.

John Garth was looking at how the First World War influenced Tolkien's characterizations of Frodo and Sam. Very interesting indeed.

I read a book--and now the name escapes me--all about Tolkein and one of the main themes was that it was WWI that really influenced LOTR, even though it came out after WWII.

Could that have been John Garth's book Tolkien and the Great War?
