A collection of thirteen stories that offer an inside view of fighting men poised at the edge of death. Includes a new fourteenth story which appears here for the very first time.Len Deightons only collection of shorter fiction, this dazzling array of stories spans twenty-three centuries of warfare.From Hannibals march on Rome - when strange, moving objects terrorise the troops of one of the toughest and most skilful armies in history - to the efforts of a belittled Civil War general to get his men to face the Confederate army; to the dawn skies above an artillery-blasted French battle-line where a dogfight unfolds, to Vietnam; where two lost American soldiers stumble across an abandoned military airfield. A bonus story, new to this edition, reveals a very different kind of war, played out in the present-day Mexican borderlands.Each story in Declarations of War explores the effects of war upon mans character, how it pushes him to act in a dehumanized, machine-like way, often leading to extraordinary deeds, both good and ill. It portrays human conflict through a series of devastating experiences and shows how great deeds are often but the smallest thread in the large fabric of war.
