War Stories (Vintage War)

by Sebastian Faulks

Part of the Vintage War Series

War Stories (Vintage War) Synopsis

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 Boell and Norman Mailer, JG Ballard and Tim O`Brian, Julian Barnes and Louis de Bernieres. Together they form a uniquely powerful evocation of the horrors of war.

War Stories (Vintage War) Press Reviews

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 *
