"Tales of War" is a melancholy, atypical, and occasionally surprising book by the author of The Gods of Pegana and The King of Elfland's Daughter. It was written for a political rather than artistic purpose, but because it was painfully inspired from life (and death) and because it is written by a great writer, it is far more than just a curio. It also crosses more than once into the fantastic realm, which is partly why it is of interest to readers of Dunsany's classic fantasy works. This special edition adds two previously uncollected stories: "One More Tale" and "La Derniere Mobilisation," plus a new introduction written especially for this volume by Dunsany scholar Darrell Schweitzer.
