Summary
In a powerful collection, eleven internationally acclaimed fiction writers draw on personal objects to bring the First World War to life for readers of all ages. A toy soldier. A butter dish. A compass. Mundane objects, perhaps, but to the remarkable authors in this collection, artifacts such as these have inspired stories that go to the heart of the human experience of World War I
