The Writers' War : World War I in the Words of Great Writers Who Experienced It Paperback

Edited by Felicity Trotman


The Writers' War is a collection of excerpts from outstanding accounts of the First World War, a terrifying conflict that would otherwise be beyond our ability to imagine.

These extracts bring the human experience of war to life - from the terror of bombardment and the camaraderie of military service to those on the home front. The writing reflects a range of nationalities and personalities.

It includes memorable poetry, fiction and journalism.

Some great names of modern English literature appear, such as Arthur Conan Doyle, D.

H. Lawrence and Rudyard Kipling. In addition, there are accounts by foreign authors such as novelists Edith Wharton and Henri Barbusse, and flying ace Manfred von Richthofen. The Writers' War offers essential insights to anyone interested in modern history or early twentieth-century literature and shows the human dimension to this world-changing event. FEATURINGG.K.
