John Galsworthy and disabled soldiers of the Great War, by Jeffrey S. Reznick, published 9 September 2009 (240 pp., Manchester University Press, ISBN-10: 0719077923 & ISBN-13: 9780719077920)
John Galsworthy - recipient of the 1932 Nobel Prize for literature - was one of the best-selling authors of the twentieth century. His literary reputation overshadows what he achieved during the Great War, which was his humanitarian support for and his compositions about soldiers disabled in the conflict. John Galsworthy and disabled soldiers of the Great War represents the most comprehensive study published to date about this literature of the 'war to end all wars.' It makes available for the first time in a single edition the most significant of his compositions about disabled soldiers, recovering them from scholarly neglect, examining their value as historical documents and connecting them to iconic images and artifacts of the period.
This study will be of interest to a wide academic audience, to readers interested in the history of the Great War, to policymakers associated with veterans' issues, and to medical professionals in the fields of physical medicine and rehabilitation.
