Compiled and introduced by the military historian Trevor Royle, this varied collection of writings - including poetry, prose, fiction and non-fiction, letters and articles - illustrates how the First World War affected the Scots, whether at home or at the front. The substantial extracts from works by, among others, John Buchan, Ian Hay, Hugh MacDiarmid and Naomi Michison, also show how the war changed Scotland in profound ways, not least by ushering in a literary renaissance and the rise of nationalism.
