Lines of Fire is the most comprehensive collection of women's writing from the First World War. Its authors are a remarkable and diverse group - citizens, soldiers, nurses, journalists, activists, wives and mothers - whose lives were emotionally, economically, and spiritually altered by this devastating war. In works by well-known authors like Rebecca West and Edith Wharton, as well as writers from India, Armenia, Hungary, and the Cameroons, we hear women speaking out on such issues as politics, economic justice, and social reform. From incisive political treatises to gripping medical accounts, diary entries, poetry, and stunning visual art, Lines of Fire vividly captures the spirit and passion of the women who lived through this divisive time in our history, and enriches our understanding of the twentieth century's Great War.
