About the Book

'They also serve who only stand and wait'

The idea of there being a 'women's writing' during the First World War is often dismissed. The war, the story goes, was a masculine domain, and as women did not fight, it is also assumed that they were excluded from a war experience.

This bibliography challenges that view by listing and annotating hundreds of published books, articles, memoirs, diaries and letters written by women during the First World War. Included are:

* Virginia Woolf

* Katherine Mansfield

* G.B Stern

* Brenda Girvin

* known and unknown autobiographers and diarists

* writers of pro and anti-war propaganda

* journal and magazine articles

* literary, cultural and historical criticism
