First World War Bookmarks

To commemorate the anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War in 1914 a new Bookmark series has been launched. By the end of 2014 it is hoped that this series will contain monographs on most of the major poets, novelists and dramatists of the period as well as individual Bookmarks on those records of that time that are central documents concerning the effects of the war on the national consciousness.
