The "New York Times" bestseller-a "gripping" posthumous collection of previously unpublished work by Kurt Vonnegut on the subject of war.
A fitting tribute to a literary legend and a profoundly humane humorist, "Armageddon in Retrospect" is a collection of twelve previously unpublished writings on war and peace. Imbued with Vonnegut's trademark rueful humor and outraged moral sense, the pieces range from a letter written by Vonnegut to his family in 1945, informing them that he'd been taken prisoner by the Germans, to his last speech, delivered after his death by his son Mark, who provides a warmly personal introduction to the collection. Taken together, these pieces provide fresh insight into Vonnegut's enduring literary genius and reinforce his ongoing moral relevance in today's world.

"A terrific post-traumatic witnessing." -Roy Blount, The New York Times Book Review "The dark irony that lies beneath Vonnegut's wry, satiric work is always in the service of the individual...and against the system." -The Boston Globe "A voice like his doesn't fade. Vonnegut had a way of making the bleakest thought seem insanely funny." -The San Diego Union-Tribune
