Understanding the Literature of World War II: A Student Casebook to Issues, Sources, and Historical Documents


"With analysis, factual contextual information, and historical documents, this book provides a detailed, but broad perspective on the most destructive event in history. Along with interviews with literary luminaries that personalize the war and help to make connections between the literature and the actual experiences of those involved, Meredith also provides rare historical documents that enhance the reader's understanding of the military and political strategies of the major forces of the war. Each chapter provides a literary analysis of the most relevant literature for students on the topic of that chapter, followed by a historical overview of the aspect of the war that will aid the student to understand the historical context of the literature. This comprehensive casebook will be valuable for interdisciplinary study of World War II and the literature from that period most frequently taught in high school English and history classes."
