NOTES: "The stories, essays, and poems in this volume portray the effects of war in our time and the shadows they cast, from the Pacific campaigns of World War II to genocide under the Khmer Rouge to hostilities in the Middle East. Soldiers, howeverm are not in the foreground in most of these works. More often, the writers depict was as a destructive force on the lives of children, women, and other civilians."
