War is...

War Is… Soldiers, Survivors, and Storytellers Talk about War edited by Marc Aronson and Patty Campbell is a moving collection of war stories from every point of view.

Broken into three parts – Deciding about War, Experiencing War, and the Aftermath of War – this book is full of real-life experiences. Each one is moving and thought provoking.

Editor Patty Campbell states that her motivation for this book is too keep people from wanting to participate in war. Marc Aronson hopes that this book gives people who are thinking of enlisting the information they need to make an informed decision – something that military recruiters do not do. Included is the hard to find contract that must be signed to enlist:

Aronson, Marc and Patty Campbell. (2008). War is… New York: Candlewick Press.
