None, Anne-Marie Einhaus. Testimony abounds that during the first year of my life I never smiled. I was known as the baby whom nothing and no one could make smile. Everyone who knew me then has told me so. I was known as the baby whom nothing and no one could make smile d, singing and bouncing me up and down, jumping around, pulling faces. Many times I was told this later by my family and their friends; but, anyway, I knew it at the time

Sadaron above the Gods
As a historian who is becoming increasingly interested in the literature of the First World War I looked forward to reading this collection, and was not disappointed. Like all such anthologies it aims to be broadly representative of the field, rather than exhaustive and masterly of any one. The result is a collection that covers a lot of ground, both in terms of areas covered and time periods represented, and thus is something of a 'jack of all trades but master of none'. This really would be my only criticism of it, that it could have been a much longer, and thus more complete, work.

The anthology is broken down into four sections:
1) Front
2) Spies and Intelligence
3) At Home
4) In Retrospect
and they cover the assorted experiences of soldiers and sailors on the front lines; those of the spies and secret agents behind the scenes; those of the ordinary civilians and relatives of soldiers back home; and those of survivors and relatives of survivors in the years after the war and looking back.

The range of authors is good, with numerous big literary names featured, including D.H. Lawrence, Joseph Conrad, Rudyard Kipling, Katherine Mansfield, W. Somerset Maugham, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Robert Graves, amongst others. The only one I had encountered before was Doyle's story bringing Sherlock Holmes out of retirement for one last service to his country. I enjoyed many of them, found the rest interesting, and only found one - Radclyffe Hall's 'Miss Ogilvy Finds Herself' a somewhat strange pick and a little out of place.

Add in a good introductory overview of WWI literature (which I actually wish was rather longer than its 9 pages), with suggestions for further readings, and a glossary of WWI terms, plus maps and notes, and this is an excellent introduction to the topic.

Not a good selection. Most of the stories pale beside the WWI stories of Vera Brittain, Edmund Blunden, Graves, Sassoon, C. S. Lewis, Faulks and Pat Barker.
