A compilation of popular fiction and non-fiction excerpts detailing the heroic and harrowing experiences of the First World War.
Not a soul in sight except the sentinels guarding the railways, muffled to the eyes, or peering out of their pine-boughs at the cross roads."
Edith Wharton, Coming Home
Published to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War, Classic Stories of World War I brings together the works of world-class authors, such as Joseph Conrad and W. Somerset Maugham, who lived through the conflict.
From the home front to the western front, in the trenches or behind enemy lines, on land or at sea, this collection is a unique insight into the "war to end war."
