The Second World War gets a very varied fictional press, and this course examines sharply differing works, considering bitterness in Heller's Catch-22, comedy in Waugh's Sword of Honour, tragedy in Scott's A Division of the Spoils, epic in Maclean's HMS Ulysses, and politics in Price's The '44 Vintage.
