Lessee - I guess it depends on how we define the category. All of the
ones in the original list deal with war as war (with the possible
exception of a few parts of the Iliad). Your list deals with war as a
central theme among other themes (Reed, Carlyle, Ludwig), horrors of
war and its aftermath (Hersey, Heller), war as means to an end (Reed,
Carlyle, Prescott), war as crucible (Crane, Mailer). Looks to me like
these all qualify!
I don't know about Forester's African Queen, not having read it.
I don't understand why you'd include Cooper though. Help me out
Comments from others?
