  • The Beuaty and the Sorrow -- Women's perpective on the war

    A new novel by Peter Englund called "The Beauty and the Sorrow"

    http://www.randomhouse.com/book/2029...Enews#synopsis

    has been released. It looks at the war from the perpective of 20 women who's loved ones have been taken away and who are affected by the war. I have not read the book myself, but I think it would be a good read. Are there other books that have taken a similar look at the war?

    The fact that it is fiction is not a problem for me. A fictional account based on good research can bring out truths better than standard historical documents.

    I would recommend Margaret H. Darrow, French Women and the First World War: Stories of the Home Front, Oxford, 2000 as being something more complex and complete. Certainly points to the schizophrenic attitude the military have to civilians in the war zone.
