Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Most books written about World War I generally focus on combat and the experiences of men. Lines of Fire challenges the restrictions of official history and traditional ideas of "war literature, " bringing together a rich and astonishing array of women's journalism, political treatises, diaries, and eyewitness accounts, as well as illustrations, fiction, and poetry written in response to WWI. Lines of Fire is also truly ground breaking in that it is an international anthology, including contributions not only from Great Britain and the United States, but also from France, Germany, Russia, Hungary, Belgium, India, Italy, Turkey, Africa, and the Middle East.
