War has no winners

Genocide, war rape, torture, betrayal, bombing, famine, misery, alienation, trauma, PTSD, being a puppet for the interests of big business.
Is it true, like Plato said, that only the dead see the end of war?
That is not the place for acts of heroism. There are other lists for that. This is a list for the reports, memoirs and fiction works that show how the dark side of mankind can really surface in wartime.

BookLovingLady It always surprises me when I don't see A Sunday at the Pool in Kigali / Un dimanche à la piscine à Kigali / Een zondag aan het zwembad in Kigali and so on, on a list like this. This book by French speaking Canadian journalist Gil Courtemanche has been translated widely...
