“Beautiful War: Studies in a Dreadful Fascination”
Author: Philip D. Beidler
Price: $34.95 (Hardcover)
Although Beidler’s last book, “The Island Called Paradise,” is a collection of essays about Cuba, America’s wars have been his main concern from the beginning of his career. Beidler devoted an entire book to discussions of Vietnam War literature, and several collections discuss World War II, “The Good War,” and its cultural aftermath.
