The soldiers' tale : bearing witness to modern war by Samuel Lynn Hynes ( Book )
21 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 1,206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Focusing on the soldiers of the two world wars and Vietnam, and on the accounts written by victims of war - survivors of POW camps, the Nazi death camps, and the atom bombs - Samuel Hynes shows us how war looks to a soldier on the field at the Somme, or Khe Sanh, or the Salerno beachhead, to a pilot in a Spitfire over the Channel or a B-17 over Schweinfurt, or to a sailor in the Coral Sea. He draws from accounts recorded under fire and from memories that look back over decades, by both unknown authors whose battle memoirs are their only published work and literary memoirists like Robert Graves and Siegfried Sassoon, Elie Wiesel and Tim O'Brien

The return of the soldier by Rebecca West ( Book )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"World War I, in the background of Rebecca West's first novel, was "the first war that women could imagine," writes Samuel Hynes in his eloquent introduction, "and so it was the first that a woman could write into a novel." Narrated by a woman who, like West, has never experienced war and yet for whom the war was very real, The Return of the Soldier (1918) takes place not on a battlefield, but in an isolated country house. It examines the relationships between three women and a soldier suffering from shell shock. This novel of an enclosed world invaded by public events also embodies in its characters the shifts in England's class structures at the beginning of the twentieth century, as well as the choice between the romantic past and the horrifying present, between love and reality"--Jacket
The enormous room by E. E Cummings ( Book )
4 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1917 young Edward Estlin Cummings went to France as a volunteer with a Red Cross ambulance unit on the western front. But his free-spirited, insubordinate ways soon got him tagged as a possible enemy of La Patrie, and he was summarily tossed into a French concentration camp at La Ferte-Mace in Normandy." "Under the vilest conditions, Cummings found fulfillment of his ever elusive quest for freedom. The Enormous Room, his account of his four-month confinement, reads like a latter-day Pilgrim's Progress, a journey into dispossession, to a place among the most debased and deprived of human creatures. Cummings's hopeful tone reflects the essential paradox of his existence: to lose everything is to become free, and so to be saved."--BOOK JACKET
