Restrained Response: American Novels of the Cold War and Korea, 1945-1962


Axelsson provides an overview of American military novels set between 1945 and 1962. These are novels informed and inspired by the conditions and background of postwar occupation, the Korean War, and the early phases of the Cold War. More than 120 narratives are considered and evaluated from a literary point of view and discussed in terms of their contribution to the understanding that period in American life and literature. Of the books considered, 27 are given extended treatment--they were selected as being representative of socio-literary phenomena.
