In the August 3, 1929 issue of The Saturday Review of Literature the editors removed their collective caps in solemn remembrance of the disasters that began that week fifteen years earlier when the opening shots were fired that started the First World War.
It was a fitting tribute coming from a literary magazine in 1929, for that would be the year that introduced some of the finest World War I books to the reading public: Undertones of War
(Blunden), The Path of Glory
(Blake) and All Quiet on the Western Front
(Remarque), which are all mentioned herein.
