Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Saunders has pulled together a rich variety of reflections on conflict and its aftermath."

-London Review of Books

"War Prose is largely about shock, and contrast: about fear and the contradictory, near-insane lack of fear, because of distraction, busyness; the contrast, also, of a soldier's life (and death) and the lives of upper-class civilians."

-Times Literary Supplement
