Review:

"[There are many] fine things in this book--on such a diversity of themes as the poetic subgenre, 'Soldiers Bathing,' the growth of double-talk and euphemism, ...the peculiar merits of Edmund Blunden as poet and memoirist to which Fussell is admirably sensitive. The section on Wlfred Owen is also good, though some of the set pieces on major figures (Sassoon, David Jones) don't work as well. The detail of the book is continuously interesting, even to the skeptical....One's sense of the whole book is that on the major issues it is right, skillful and compassionate....[It] is an important contribution to our understanding of how we came to make [the Great War] part of our minds."

Frank Kermode, New York Times Book Review, 08/31/1975

Book Description: Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2000. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 25th Anniversary ed. 203 x 135 mm. Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The year 2000 marks the 25th anniversary of one of the most original and gripping volumes ever written about the First World War. Fussell illuminates a war that changed a generation and revolutionised the way we see the world. He explores the British experience on the western Front from 1914 to 1918, focusing on the various literary means by which it has been remembered, conventionalized and mythologized. It is also about the literary dimensions of the experience itself. Fussell supplies contexts, both actual and literary, for writers who have most effectively memorialized the Great War as an historical experience with conspicuous imaginative and artistic meaning. These writers include the classic memoirists Siegfried Sassoon, Robert Graves and Edmund Blunden, and poets David Jones, Isaac Rosenberg, and Wilfred Owen. In his new introduction Fussell discusses the critical responses to his work, the authors and works that inspired his own writing, and the elements which influence our understanding and memory of war. Fussell also shares the stirring experience of his research at the Imperial War Museum s Department of Documents. Fussell includes a new Suggested Further Reading List.
