We are very pleased to announce the publication of HORRORS OF WAR: THE UNDEAD ON THE BATTLEFIELD, edited by Cynthia J. Miller and A. Bowdoin Van Riper (Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group).
Horrors of War: The Undead on the Battlefield explores the meaning and significance of these tales. Among the questions that the volume seeks to answer are: How do supernatural stories engage with cultural attitudes toward war? In what ways do these stories reflect or challenge the popular memories of particular wars? How do they ask us to think again about battlefield heroism, military ethics, and the politics of sacrifice? Chapters authored by a diverse group of international scholars and media pracitioners examine undead war stories in film (Carol for Another Christmas, The Devil’s Backbone), television (The Twilight Zone), literature (The Bloody Red Baron, Devils of D-Day), comics (Weird War Tales, The Haunted Tank), graphic novels (The War of the Trenches), and gaming (Call of Duty: World at War).
