One corollary of my interest in the apocalyptic is an interest in war and War, both war as a mundane, eternal practice and War as a central force in the human experience. In my efforts to follow both of these streams, sometimes I come across things which are important, powerful and moving both for their subject matter and also for their style. Like this. I don’t know Gelhorn that well, I think at best I’ve read maybe half a dozen of her pieces, primarily on World War II, and I didn’t know of Susie Linfield at all until now. I definitely need to follow her work from now on.
