9780099597582: War Stories (Vintage War)

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

Review:

"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)

Book Description:

'War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is also mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead'

To mark the centenary of the First World War, Vintage is launching a unique collection of war fiction. April 2014 will see the publication of twelve works by the greatest writers of the last century, each tackling this most powerful and universal of subjects.
