[World War I Literature] Fussell, Paul.
The Great War and Modern Memory: The Illustrated Edition.
A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket . This is one of seminal books examining the shattering effects of the First World War on the English soldiers that took part in the slaughter fields of France. Fussell traces the changes in attitudes and the shattered idealism that marked the Lost Generation forever following the armistice. The effects of the carnage inflicted by the war changed the attitudes of the writers involved and created a new more "modern" artistic temperment and forced new images of violence into their language and art which infused the collective consciousness of their generation and those that followed. This edition is especially illustrated with pertinent photographs and images of the whole war experience.
