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.
These literati would recall 1914 for other reasons as well, for 1929 has been marked by historians as 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) - all are mentioned herein.
Pictured above is a first edition of Remarque's novel.
