Enter the Lists

17 May

George Simmers at Great War Fiction has found a very interesting list of books.  The list dates from 1918, and includes 130 books that the compiler believed would be of enduring value in understanding the war.  For those interested (as I am) in approaching the war through the lens of the works actually produced at the time, this is a remarkably useful resource.  Go check it out!

I can only claim to have read twenty of the books on the list, so this is going to present me with some wonderful leads.  I’m particularly delighted to see in the Cartoonists section that the matchless W. Heath Robinson apparently produced a volume of war cartoons.  There’s nothing I’d rather see this afternoon.
