This chapter outlines the contribution made by short fiction to the representation and memory of the First World War. Drawing on short stories published between 1914 and the war’s centenary years, this chapter argues that short fiction can reveal as much about the multifaceted global experience of war as about the war’s shifting place in contemporary cultural memory. The short story of and about the First World War is explored both as an archive of experience and a mediator of memory.
