Diplomacy by other means may, at times, sound heroic. A fight for principles and ideals carried out by young men armed to the teeth and directed by older men in pursuit of their own version of glory for themselves and their Nations. Right will triumph over wrong. But war can be an illusion, stirred up by schemers and opportunists to take something from other nations that may or may not be right. As blood and limb are sacrificed the true cost is seen but often set to one side as the dispute becomes embedded in emotions and reason falls away. In this volume our classic authors including Victor Hugo, Thomas Wolfe, Ambrose Bierce, Ford Madox Ford and many others explore the many facets of this problem and its human dimensions. 1 - Short Stories About War - An Introduction2 - Roger Malvin's Burial by Nathaniel Hawthorne3 - A Fight with a Cannon by Victor Hugo4 - A Horseman in the Sky by Ambrose Bierce5 - Pink Flannel by Ford Maddox Ford6 - Two Friends by Guy de Maupassant7 - War by Luigi Pirandello8 - The Fly by Katherine Mansfield9 - An Occurrence At Owl Creek Bridge by Ambrose_Bierce10 - The Devil Light by Edgar Wallace11 - The Siege of Berlin by Alphonse Daudet12 - Red Tape by May Sinclair13 - A Cullenden of Virginia by Thomas Wolfe14 - The Revolutionist by Mikhail Petrovich Artzybashev15 - Spud Trevor of the Red Hussars by Sapper16 - Chickamauga by Ambrose Bierce17 - The Bowmen by Arthur Machen18 - Wodjabet by C E Montague19 - The Casualty List by Winifred Holtby20 - The Loathly Opposite by John Buchan21 - The Strange Looking Man by Fanny Kemble Johnson22 - The German Spy by William Hope Hodgson23 - The Soul of a Regiment by Talbot Mundy24 - My First Goose by Isaac Babel25 - The Locket by Kate Chopin26 - Them Others by Stacy Aumonier27 - The Story of a Conscience by Ambrose Bierce
