Lewis has collected such accounts as Ernest Hemingway's on the D-Day landing, George Orwell's on the Spanish Civil War, Robert Graves's on WWI's Western Front, and John Reed's on the Bolshevik Revolution.

War, as the general said, is hell. But in a few it also brings out the best. Heroism and horror are the keynotes of this gripping new collection of war writing. From the Siege of Troy to the present day, The Mammoth Book of True War Stories includes battle analyses by celebrated historians, letters home by ordinary Gis, high-adrenaline memoirs by frontline combatants and memorable reportage by master chroniclers such as Ernest Hemingway and John Reed.
