Ranging from the 1st international warfare to the Gulf conflict, this selection of tales investigates the character of army adventure: from call-ups, the sector of conflict and comradeship, to depart, hospitalisation and trauma in later existence.
Truly foreign in scope, it comprises tales via 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. jointly they shape a uniquely strong evocation of the horrors of conflict.
