Summary
Although war memoirs constitute a rich, varied literary form, they are often dismissed by historians as unreliable. This collection of essays explores the modern war memoir, revealing the genre's surprising capacity for breadth and sophistication while remaining sensitive to the challenges it poses for scholars. Covering conflicts from the Napoleonic era to today, the studies gathered here consider how memoirs have been used to transmit particular views of war even as they have emerged within specific social and political contexts
