The Scottish Book Trust recently added a post to their site of ten recommended war memoirs titled, naturally, War! Huh! What is it Good For? Given that 2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the war that would go on to be known as World War I, it’s a timely list. Personally, my war-related reading tends to focus more on the recent and ongoing conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, so I’ve only read one of the books on the list (If I Die in a Combat Zone by Tim O’Brien). In my not-at-all-relevant defense, I’ve had Dispatches by Michael Herr on order at the library for quite some time now, and I read some Wilfred Owen poetry at school. Anyway, since my own reading has focused on quite a different area from The Scottish Book Trust’s, I’ve decided to put my own top ten together. The list is arranged alphabetically because I have always been terrible at assigning a ranking to things, which is why I never rate anything over on my LibraryThing account.
