Bringing together Sigmund Freud, Osip Mandelstam, Lloyd George, Bertrand Russell, Isaac Rosenberg, Sigfried Sassoon, Vera Brittain -voices famous and unknown - Peter Vansittart takes us through the course of the Great War, juxtaposing letters from the trenches with music-hall songs, and the words of poets and politicians. Linking the public and the personal, the history with the myth, his rich and unorthodox anthology forms a moving image of everything that went into the War, and culminated in its 'scalding waste of spirit'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A historical echo chamber, agog with eye-witnesses, newspaper head-lines, memoirs, massacres and maniacs. He arranges his relic with moving irony. '" * Sunday Times *
"This valuable and entertaining anthology. . . does not set out to de-mythologize the war. . . But it goes a long way towards decosmeticizing it, showing the savage realities in which the myth had its roots." * Observer *
