Description
From the editors of The Assassin's Cloak comes this anthology of powerful and often surprising diary entries from war fronts throughout history. From international personalities like Che Guevara, Virginia Woolf, and Davy Crockett to anonymous soldiers in the trenches, these poignant and intense missives capture the immediacy, horror, and humanity of war in candid intimacy. Here too are contributions from Nol Coward, Andr Gide, Josef Goebbels, Franz Kafka, Thomas Mann, H.L. Mencken, Anas Nin, Florence Nightingale, Samuel Pepys, Salam Pax, Jean-Paul Sartre, Leo Tolstoy, and Queen Victoria.

"The writers are mere flotsam on the tides of war. Their words are subjective, partial, personal, sometimes prejudiced.... But taken together and spanning centuries of warfare, they are the very stuff and substance of human experience."The Times (London)
