2002 | ISBN-10: 0719060702, 0719060710 | PDF | 224 pages | 3 MB

This book draws together for the very first time examples of the "aesthetic pacifism" practiced during the Great War by such celebrated individuals as Virginia Woolf, Siegfried Sassoon, and Bertrand Russell. In addition, the book outlines the stories of those less well-known who shared the mindset of the Bloomsbury Group and those around them when it came to facing the first "total war."
