Love And War (1915) - New Centenary Reprint Available!


During the First World War, Nadja published two more volumes of poems - Love & War (Arthur Humphrey, London 1915) and For Empire and Other Poems (Arthur Humphreys, London 1916). She donated the profits from these collections to the St Dunstan's Charity for Blind Servicemen (which opened in 1915) and The Royal Star & Garter Home for Disabled Soldiers and Sailors (which opened in 1916).

Now - one hundred years on, we are pleased to announce that the Nadja Malacrida Society has been able to produce a special reprint edition of the Love & War collection, in a 24 page booklet - which we are making available to support those same two charities.

Instead of selling copies and giving them the profits afterwards, we have donated a quantity of copies of the book to each of the two charities for them to sell / use in whatever way suits them best.

If you would particularly to support one or other of these two very good causes, the best thing to do would be to contact the charity of your choice (details below) and enquire how you can purchase a copy of Love and War from them so as to maximise their charitable income.

You can also order a copy straight from us, in which case the proceeds of the sale don't go direct to the charities but help to cover the costs of the books that we have already supplied to them.

St Dunstan's is now called Blind Veterans UK and you can find out more about them at www.blindveterans.org.uk 

The Royal Star And Garter Homes charity can be contacted at: http://starandgarter.org/
