''Highly readable . . . an intimate and varied account of fascinating stories of people at war''History of War

WAR STORIESis a fascinating account of ordinary men and women swept up in the turbulence of war. These are the stories - many untold until now - of thirty-four individuals who have pushed the boundaries of love, bravery, suffering and terror beyond the imaginable. They span three centuries and five continents.
