The First World War involved more writers and prompted more writing than perhaps any other. This anthology of prose and verse, chronologically ordered, tells the story of the war in the words of both soldiers and civilians, including Wilfred Owen, Arthur Conan Doyle, Edith Wharton and Rudyard Kipling. With the urgency of the moment, these extracts capture the carnage and camaraderie, patriotism and disillusionment, the anxiety of those on the home front and the grief of the bereaved.
