The Soul of the War

The Soul of the War Summary

The Soul of the War (1915), The Battle of the Somme (1917), From Bapaume to Passchendaele (1918) and The Realities of War (1920). This book is a companion book to another book by Philip Gibbs that is already in the Project Gutenberg library, namely _Now It Can Be Told_[1]. Together, both books constitute the war-time memoirs of British war-correspondent Philip Gibbs, one of the few officially accredited journalists allowed on the British sector of the Western front. He covered the war from beginning to end. _The Soul of the War_ is the first part of his memoirs, published in 1915, _Now It Can Be Told_ is the second part, but published immediately after the war. Taken together, both books are amongst the most important and influential books published in English during the Great War, being in no small part responsible for the emergence of the "Lost Generation" myth of the 1920's.
