This is an examination of literary depictions of war and war-time in France from the early 19th century - the Napoleonic era - through to World War II and its aftermath. It explores, in a historical, cultural and ideological context, the development of nationalism and evolving views on warfare, how war has been treated by authors and artists in France since 1800, and the distinctive ways of grappling with the physical, psychological and philosophical issues in a war-novel genre.
