It'd be hard to miss the classical bronze statue, "To Brooke," an honorary tribute to the heroic Edwardian-era English poet Rupert Brooke. Every street seems to lead either to it or to the Kastro, and the statue stands alone with a 180-degree view of the sea behind it. In 1915, aged 28, Brooke was on his way to the Dardanelles to fight in World War I when he died of septicemia in a French hospital ship off Skyros. Brooke was a socialist, but he became something
of a paragon for war leaders such as Winston Churchill.
