Overview

Daily news reports rarely bring home the messy reality of modern war in any but the most superficial and cliched terms. But the current tensions around the world are increasingly drawing the attention of some of our most gifted journalists and writers. In Writing War, the series editor of the thoughtful, visceral anthologies American Soldier: Stories of Special Forces from Iraq to Afghanistan and The War: Stories of Life and Death from World War II, has drawn on this growing body of compelling history-in-the-making, to create a timely compilation of the decades's most powerful writing about warfare. Featuring work by Robert Young Pelton, Scott Anderson, Philip Caputo, Jonathan Neale, James McPherson, Sebastian Junger, and many others, this revealing and powerful new collection captures the complex realities of warfare and conflict in hot spots from Iraq to Colombia to Somalia to Afghanistan.
