Ranging from the First World War to the Gulf War, this collection of stories investigates the nature of military experience: from call-ups, the field of battle and comradeship, to leave, hospitalisation and trauma in later life. Truly international in scope, it includes stories by Erich Maria Remarque and Pat Barker, Isaac Babel and Ernest Hemingway, Heinrich B ll and Norman Mailer, JG Ballard and Tim O`Brian, Julian Barnes and Louis de Berni res. Together they form a uniquely powerful evocation of the horrors of war.
"The range is international, the impeccable standards of writing never dip. This is some of the finest writing about war" Independant on Sunday "An anthology that tries, in a century that has made an art form of killing, to make sense of it all" Guardian "A substantial and compelling read" Metro
