Descripción del producto

Reseña del editor

Here is an anthology which reveals the many faces of war: the grim, the tragic, the lighthearted, and the humorous. Award-winning writers provide a kaleidoscope of images spanning 150 years from the American Civil War to the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. From Russell Reece's chilling tale about fishing for dead bodies in the Mekong Delta to Nicholas Samaras's final declaration, "All war stories are love stories," we examine both the known and the more obscure facets of armed conflict. In "Sniper," a poor farm boy undergoes an entire personality change as he becomes a cold-blooded killer for the military. In "Insanity is Contagious," a wife struggles to keep her own sanity while dealing with a husband's Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. In "Buchenwald Diary," a soldier tours a German concentration camp and is stunned to find little difference between the dead and some of the living. And in "Abu Ghraib Suggests the Isenheim Altarpiece," the issue of American torture is questioned. Those who have experienced war will recognize much of what resides between these pages. Those who have not will gain new insight into this age-old issue.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Connecting to sacrifices 4 de noviembre de 2012
Por Sunalei - Publicado en
Formato: Tapa blanda
There are many ways to honor our military veterans, but few ways to experience the nature of their sacrifices. Remembrances of Wars Past, A War Veterans Anthology, through personal accounts, fiction based on experience, and poetry, provides a means to bridge the gap between civilian reality and the nature of war as experienced by our soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines. Read this worthy anthology as a personal way to connect to the sacrifices of the men and women in our Armed Forces, and then be grateful to Henry F. Tonn for his vision to collect, edit, and publish this socially meaningful literary document.

This book will take you from Rommel's desert to Vietnam's jungle, from Hiroshima to Gitmo. Take it in small doses because what war does to the human heart is overwhelming. read it-you will never forget it.

As Henry says, "People risking their lives to defend our country could write like this?" Of course they can, and they have stories to tell. Our soldiers come from all walks of life, and many continue to educate themselves long after their release from the military. What is missing? More authors to write the stories directly from the soldier's verbal tales. Henry includes a couple that he wrote, but the number floating around are endless. Someone should write them. Most soldiers won't talk about much less write about their experiences. But for the ones that will talk wouldn't it be great if Henry's example would be picked up by others and more of these "remembrances" could become available for all of us to read? Thanks to Henry Tonn for leading the way.

A great read. Brings war right into your living room, up in your face, and a kick in the guts.
It's a well balance of fiction, non-fiction and poetry to make an excellent anthology. The
realism tells us that there is not anything romantic about war. Just the dying and those who
are lucky enough to come back home and try to forget what they can't. This is not for bed time
reading as you will have nightmares and remember vividly when you wake. After you read one
horror to the next, you can put the book down and be thankful you was not there. That you
didn't see the dark side of the human condition. Still, the events and stories have to be told
and known.
