Ford and the First World War

  This chapter surveys Ford Madox Ford's writings about war. He was conscious of war writing by the beginning of the twentieth century via his friendship with Stephen Crane; the First World War, however, was the major conflict for Ford. He wrote about it repeatedly in poetry, fiction and essay form, continuing to work through the experience of being shell-shocked to the end of his life in 1939, on the cusp of another war.
