Overview

From the trenches to the home front, the most profound fiction inspired by World War I—and a moving memorial to the twentieth century's most cataclysmic event.

The Great War gave birth to some of the twentieth century’s most celebrated writing; from D. H. Lawrence to Siegfried Sassoon, the literature generated by the war is etched into collective memory. But it is in fiction that we find some of the most profound insights into the war’s individual and communal tragedies, the horror of life in the trenches, and the grand farce of the first industrial war.

Featuring forty-seven writers from twenty different nations, representing all the main participants in the conflict, No Man’s Land is a truly international anthology of World War I fiction. Work by Erich Maria Remarque, Willa Cather, William Faulkner, and Rose Macaulay sits alongside forgotten masterpieces such as Stratis Myrivilis’s Life in the Tomb, Raymond Escholier’s Mahmadou Fofana, and Mary Borden’s The Forbidden Zone.

No Man’s Land is a brilliant memorial to the twentieth century’s most cataclysmic event.
