Wharton spent the World War I years in a whirlwind of humanitarian activity, yet she still found time to write two major works of fiction. In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the ending of the First World War in 1918, we will be discussing her war works: the novella The Marne (1918), and the novel A Son at The Front (1923).
