The literary canon of World War I - celebrated for realizing the experience of an entire generation - ignores writing by women. The war brought home to women the sorrow of the loss of husbands, lovers and relatives as well as more revolutionary knowledge gained through the experience of working in munitions factories and as ambulance drivers, police, nurses and spies. During all this time women wrote - letters, poetry, novels, short stories and memoirs. This volume of mutually reflective essays brings writing from Britain, America, France, Germany, Australia and Russia into literary focus.
