American novelist Edith Wharton saved the lives of thousands of Belgian and French refugees during World War I. When the war began, the expatriated Wharton and Henry James saw any possible German victory as "the crash of civilization", thus prompting their early involvement in the allied cause. In the opening weeks of the conflict, Wharton wrote war reportage at the front and organized relief efforts in Paris. Before the first year of the war was over, she had created organizations and raised funds for three major war charities that bore her name. This book tells the dramatic story of how, as the war sank into a stalemate of trench warfare, Wharton continued her heroic crusade.
