Summary
"[This book] turns the spotlight on the novels and memoirs of women writers -- many of whom are now virtually forgotten -- that appealed to a British reading public hungry for amusement, news, and above all, encouragement in the face of uncertainty and grief. The writers of 1914-18 had powerful models for interpreting their war ... They were also bolstered by wartime publishing practices that reinforced the sense that their books, whether fiction or non-fiction, were not simply 'light' entertainment but powerful agents of propaganda"--Dust jacket
