Description
From Julius Caesar crossing the Rubicon to Michael Herr reporting on the fighting in Vietnam, the twenty-seven selections presented in THE GREATEST WAR STORIES EVER TOLD comprise the most diverse reading experience ever gathered between the covers of a single book. Every story brings the terror, sacrifice, & heartbreak of battle to the reader with unrelenting power. For all its horrors, the experience of war provokes an almost universal fascination that asks, "What was it like? What was it like with Wellington & Napoleon at Waterloo? In the trenches at the Somme? On Normandy Beach? At the Chosin River in Korea? At the siege of Khe-San in Vietnam? Some of the greatest writers & reporters of all time, & the service personnel who were under fire, answer these questions & far more in The Greatest War Stories Ever Told. With contributions from: Stephen Ambrose, Julius Caesar, Winston Churchill, Ivan Connell, Stephen Crane, Shelby Foote, John Graves, Ernest Hemingway, Michael Herr, John Hersey, Victor Hugo, Rudyard Kipling, S.L.A. Marshall, Ernie Pyle, Derek Robinson, Cornelius Ryan Michael Shaara, Irwin Shaw.
