The first edition of this work. 'The Land' is a short plea from John Galsworthy, as he makes an argument for better utilisation of the land for the sake of national security. This was written at published towards the end of the First World War in January 1918, and so offers an interesting insight into the mindset of the British at the end of the war. Galsworthy was passed over for military service during the First World War, however he went to France to work in a hospital, eager to help in the effort. Galsworthy won the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1932. He is best known for his 'Forsythe Saga', however he was also a strong advocate in various pressing social causes at the time, including prison reform, women's rights, and animal welfare.
