War Games - White Wolves: Stories with Historical Settings (Paperback). James Riordan (author). It's Christmas Eve, 1914, and there's a war on. British and German soldiers sit in the muddy trenches either side of No Man's Land, as deadly enemies. Suddenly, a strange sound fills the air. A German voice is singing 'Silent Night' Added to basket.

Out of the hundreds of wars that ravaged the 20th century, the three wars covered in this book (both World Wars and Vietnam) were the longest and . The stories and poems are from all nationalities, men, women and children.

Out of the hundreds of wars that ravaged the 20th century, the three wars covered in this book (both World Wars and Vietnam) were the longest and blackest, lasting, in total, 20 years and killing nearly 100,000,000 people.

James Riordan grew up during the war in his chimney-sweep grandfather's house in Portsmouth. After school he was a barman, waiter, railway clerk, commercial salesman, and dance band musician. During his National Service in the RAF he learned Russian and went on to become Professor of Russian Studies at Surrey University. Besides novels, he has written folk-tale collections, picture books and over 20 academic publications.

Then came the 'Era of Disillusion,' which followed World War I; the cultural revolt of the 'Roaring Twenties'; the rise of organized crime and of political and police corruption, which accompanied national Prohibition; and the ensuing Great Depression. All contributed to changing the nature of American literature-with detective fiction leading the way in its recording of a distinctive American voice and its depiction of the social scene.

Out of the hundreds of wars that ravaged the twentieth century, the three wars covered in this book were the longest and blackest. In total they lasted 20 years and killed nearly 100,000,000 people. The writers in this collection of stories and poems are friend and foe - British and German, Russian and American. The first story is from "All Quiet on the Western Front" by the German Erich Maria Remarque, perhaps the most moving war novel ever written. Other writers - Russian, German, and English - convey in verse the tragedy and waste of the 'Great War'. The six British Children's writers write about World War II - Robert Westall and Robert Swindells on the 'home' war, Michael Morpugo about a 'war horse', Jill Paton Walsh on the war at sea, and Ian Serraillier and Anne Hohn on refugees in occupied Europe. Young girls - Anne Frank and Tatiana Vassieleva - provide war diaries. Since 1945 no one has suffered as much as the people of Vietnam. In her moving story, Rachel Anderson shows not only a nation's suffering but how war can brutalise soldiers. Finally, the women's poems on the two world wars show that war is a woman's affair as well as a man's.
