Enid Bagnold (1889-1981) is best known as the writer of National Velvet (1935), which was adapted into a movie starring Elizabeth Taylor. However, she was also a nurse and ambulance driver in World War I. A Diary Without Dates (1917) and Happy Foreigner (1920) are about the Great War, the former being nonfiction and the latter being a fictionalized text of her romance and affair with a French officer.
