First World War Centenary Prose Collection Vol. III


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

This collection of non-fiction and fiction pieces is the third volume commemorating the First World War. The majority of the items, all chosen by the readers, are in English, but the collection also includes pieces in Dutch, French, German, Italian and Portuguese.

Please note that some works are still protected by copyright in countries which observe copyright laws based on the author's date of death.

Most items were written during or shortly after the war, but one or two have been included for their relevance in other ways. For more information about each piece, please see this document (PDF format), which also shows the authors' dates of death. (Summary by Ruth Golding)
