In 1929 Masefield broke with the contest concept and the Recitations came to an end. His father died soon after following a mental breakdown. When he returned to England he submitted a report to the British Foreign Office and suggested that he be allowed to write a book about the failure of the allied efforts in the Dardanelles which possibly could be used in the US in order to counter what he thought was German propaganda there.
