Stories of the First World War

· 01/20/2019 · Michael Schmitt

With the introduction of Edith Wharton's A Son at the Front to the public domain, it seemed a good opportunity to highlight the many World War I works available through Serial Reader.

They range from autobiographical - like E.E. Cummings' The Enormous Room and Henri Barbusse's Under Fire - to adventurous - such as in John Buchan's Richard Hannay series - to how the shockwave of war impacts those called to fight and their families as Rebecca West, Willa Cather, and Edith Wharton explore.
