"Men at War" edited by Ernest Hemingway is an imposing anthology (over 1000 pages and over 80 stories) of men in battle conditions. The range of time is from Biblical to the middle of World War II, when it was published. The bulk of the conflicts described come from the Napoleonic wars and World War I. Most are true, first person accounts, but some fiction is included. In all cases the effect that war has on the human condition, both good and bad, is effectively described. A truly awesome collection on a single theme. As with most anthologies, there are a few stories that do not inspire, but overall, a fine reading experience. I was first introduced to the book in the HBO series "Pacific" as being carried by a beloved commander who was killed. One of life’s ironies. I love Ernest Hemingway's writing style and the history of war, so I was very happy with this book. I especially like the amount of research put into historical data I gleaned from this book. I wish I would have known about it when I was in school for a report or review. E. Joseph Anna The deepest story in this one goes all the way back to King David of Israel with the fight to the death with Goliath of the Philistines. A truly epic work. Author Glenn Langohr
