Writers on War
Produced by: Neenah Ellis
Every war produces its own literature. The novels, memoirs, poetry and essays from the soldiers who fought are often the most poignant reflections on moments of personal tragedy or banality that make the reality of war only too real for those who stayed behind. Producer Neenah Ellis brings us the stories and memories of three writers: Eugene Sledge on battles in the South Pacific during World War II; Rolando Hinojosa on the fight to take Seoul in the Korean War; and James Webb on the landscape of the Vietnam War.

Program Credits

"Writers on War" was produced by Nina Ellis. James Webb has written six novels, his most recent being "Lost Soldiers". His Vietnam work is called "Fields of Fire". Rolando Hinojosa's best known work is the "Klail City Death Trip" series, comprising more than a dozen short novels. He related his war stories in the work "Korean Love Songs" a collection of narrative poetry. Eugene Sledge's memoir about WWII is called "With the Old Breed: At Okinawa and Peleliu".
