  • About the Edition

    Poverty, factory work and union activism have filled Lu Wilmott with a determination to widen her horizons. The call to Spain, burdened by Civil War, is irresistible: she can be useful, live up to her ideals and be the woman she"s always wanted to be. Signing up, Lu breaks the last link with her past and becomes Eve ... As one of the few women in charge of heavy vehicles, her work takes her close to those of many nationalities, but it is with Spain, its people and its struggle against Franco that she falls in love. Here, worlds away from her former life, Eve encounters an old flame - but there is little room in her new life for romance ... In the crucible of war - extremes of death and disease, fear and chaos - a formidable woman of great strength is forged from the basic elements of the spirited, naive girl who left Portsmouth.

      Soldiers were returning home wounded and psychologically damaged. Brave photojournalists, embedded with military units, were dispatching strong images showing the war. God Is Not Here is a courageous book by a thoughtful warrior whose personal story shows us the terrible moral and human costs of torture, not just to those who are tortured, but to the torturers. Scott Cooper. God is Not Here is an honest, gritty and unflinching look at the war in Iraq and its impact on the human spirit. The writing is crisp.

      Not a physical return from war, but rather a return to normality after an orgy of violence. And then the rebels leave, and a patrol of national and civil guards arives. 7. Just War Theory as termed in English typically encompasses three Latin-named concepts governing different aspects of defining a so-called "just war." Jus ad bellum considers the right to go to war.

The Soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country ”. We’re now at book number 4 of your Vietnam War books. This is Fields of Fire () by James Webb.

This is a book I like because Webb understands the warrior mentality. I’m not one. I’m a citizen soldier who gets drafted and I’ll do my bit and then I want out. War is the backdrop, but the misery that unfolds can be traced back to the conflict of ideologies and fighting.

Doctor Zhivago - Boris Pasternak. Of course, Doctor Zhivago – much like War and Peace and Gone With The Wind – is not just a war novel. It’s a dizzying and spellbinding narrative whose epic scope takes in one of most turbulent.

And the linkages—between his experiences and those of other writers, family members, and soldiers—provide a partial answer to that central question. The military is not just a martial organization, it is a state of mind—a sort of “place” that exists outside of location and time.

Incredible book - its not just about war, but the human condition. I am not a huge war-book reader, but this one is about spirit, and people, and what its like to be doing something most of us cannot imagine.

It also delves a little bit into returning back to civilian life after a tour, which is fascinating. War effects more than just soldiers. Innocent men and women, children, and entire families are often eaten whole by conflict.
