Summary
From the first "modern" war, World War I, to the Asian wars in Korea and Vietnam, poems, articles, letters, reminiscences, and fiction reflect the mood of each era. Pieces range from the 1914 letter of a Scottish soldier to his father and John Dos Passos's 1938 article "Room and Bath at the Hotel Florida" to "Redeployment," Howard Nemerov's poem of postwar speculation, and the Vietnam War memoirs of Ron Kovic and Tim O'Brien
