Friday Ephemera #3

I feel like I've been reading a lot of books about war lately. It's a fascinating subject. Just picking one war, say World War II, you can have so many different kinds of books about it. You might write about it from the perspective of those left behind, from those on the front lines, from a British perspective, American, Jewish, even German or Japanese, you might set it in England, France, Germany, Africa, Italy, and just the setting can change the whole tone of the book. You could set it during different times during the war, things seem to be going one way, a year later everything will be completely different. It could be hopeful or despairing, anti-war or not. There are so many components to a war.
This piece of war looks rather peaceful...
