summary

"A wide ranging, challenging and constantly surprising collection ... focusing on the divisions the war created between men and women."
Pat Barker

This is an anthology of short stories of World War I from 25 classic writers.

Gertrude Stein, Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield are among the women writers whose works account for half the volume. The stories are by turn poignant, violent, harsh, tender and desolating.
