    Book synopsis: The Literature of War is a three-volume full-color set dealing with a topic that goes beyond the literary perspective to provide the historical, cultural and social context of works that focus on armed conflict throughout the world and time. It highlights the realities of war, its impact on society, and how it affects our understanding of it. Explore hundreds of pages that examine profound war-related literature, available now for the first time as a collection in print and eBook editions. Arranged thematically, the three volumes cover: Approaches (the ways we write about war, including propaganda, histories, memoirs, journalism, and satire), Experiences (first-hand accounts from soldiers, nurses, and civilians), and Impacts (the aftermath of war and its impact on communities and individuals). The entries in The Literature of War help readers identify and understand the themes, focus, language, psychological and social impact, and perception of war through the eyes and words of their respective authors, inviting further reading and discussion.
