I've posted 11 anti-war songs, and I've done Labour Day readers' advisory, but I don't think I've ever done anti-war readers' advisory.*** Here are 11 great books with an anti-war themes.
1. The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
2. Slaughterhouse-Five, Kurt Vonnegut
3. War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning, Chris Hedges (nonfiction)
4. Regeneration, Pat Barker
5. Johnny Got His Gun, Dalton Trumbo
6. Hiroshima, John Hersey (nonfiction)
7. Mother Courage and Her Children, Bertolt Brecht (drama)
8. A Farewell to Arms, Ernest Hemingway
9. Catch-22, Joseph Heller
10. The Deserter's Tale, Joshua Key with Lawrence Hill (nonfiction)
11. And finally, the greatest anti-war novel of all time, All Quiet on the Western Front, Erich Maria Remarque
There are many, many others: here are some lists.
