Below is part 2 of 4 of my list of British women writers who published significant work about World War I or World War II. This section, I've just noticed, contains a disproportionate number of my favorite authors. Apparently, I am biased in favor of authors whose names begin with D-K.
Among them is perhaps my favorite memoirist of World War II—Frances Faviell (Olivia Parker), whose A Chelsea Concerto I've raved about here before—as well as my favorite diarist of the war, Vere Hodgson. There's one of my favorite Persephone rediscoveries, Norah Hoult (though she still hasn't been rediscovered enough), and there's one of the funniest authors who ever tackled a major war, Joyce Dennys. Plus, there are several highly recognizable names who are among my most-read authors—E. M. Delafield, Stella Gibbons, and Rumer Godden. Obviously, my interests have most often skewed toward World War II, but the list also includes one of the most powerful authors on World War I that I've ever come across, Cicely Hamilton.
Of course, there are also some authors I haven't yet gotten around to, so there's more to look forward to, and hopefully there are some interesting discoveries for you as well. Hope you enjoy it.
