Now all roads lead to France and heavy is the tread
Of the living; but the dead returning lightly dance.

The World's Work Magazine Covered the War

The World's Work (1900–1932) was a monthly magazine that covered national affairs from a pro-business point of view. It was produced by the publishing house Doubleday, Page and Company, which provided the first editor, Walter Hines Page.  Page would serve as the American ambassador to the Court of St. James's during the First World War. Possibly because of this, the magazine had excellent coverage of the war, even before the United States became a belligerent. The editors also published periodic compilations of their war articles called "War Manuals."
