    contradictory as real life but war isn't life

    I think this is a difficult, irregular book. We see, war and over all WW II was a terrible, industrial, inhumane war, but this is the case there are in life inhumane things people must do if they don¿t want the world go to the bottom of worst. One of these things is the intervention of the Allies in WW II. I think Fussell, who fought in the war didn¿t understood these, and so his sight is biased: German, Italian or Japanese armament and moral or training he seems to say was better than these of the Allies. But then, how the Axis lost the war?. Furthermore, this book contains a big amount of literary outlines and citations in such a mode one is tempted to think that he¿s in reading another book. The author loves literature over all and hates war, well, this is good, of course. He, no doubt is a brave man but wasn¿t a warrior in the soul. But these qualities make the book to have a strange taste of contradiction that another antibellicist books doesn¿t possess. For example he says that the Allied command studied seriously the invasion of the continent toward Spain who was a ¿neutral¿ country. I¿m Spanish and although I don¿t knew those times I knew Gral Franco¿s regime and his strange neutrality. Much people wanted these decision was a true fact (at less, the half of population formed by the Republican side defeated by the rebels). Franco was pro Axis but he was too much crafty and Spain too much impoverished for participating actively with the Germans.
