World War I was a pivotal moment for William Faulkner. He changed the spelling of his name to join the Royal Air Force. Although the war ended before he finished flight training, he wore a pilot’s uniform around Oxford, Mississippi. He wrote his first novel about the war, he wrote his first Yoknapatawpha novel about the war, he wrote several short stories about the war, and he wrote one of his late novels about the war.
