About this title

Synopsis:

Twenty short stories present a modern view of war and its influence on the culture, values, and lives of the people for and against, involved and neutral, in recent wars and confrontations, translated from raw experience into literature

From Publishers Weekly:

This engaging collection of contemporary short stories is about both the brutality of war as experienced in its immediacy on the field and about its long- term effect on daily life. Some stories recall battles of the past, such as Bob Shacochis's "Where Pelham Fell," and others are set in the future, like Don DeLillo's "Human Moments in World War III." Most stories refer to Vietnam. "Good Morning to You, Lieutenant" by Larry Heinemann and "Big Bertha Stories" by Bobbie Ann Mason explore the residual effect of traumas first experienced in Southeast Asia. Tim O'Brien's "The Ghost Soldiers" and John Mort's "Tanks" describe the soldier's routine in Vietnam. John Sayles's "Tan" is a moving account of a Vietnamese girl's life at home and then later as a refugee here. Jenks is former fiction editor of Esquire.
