mainpage Books of the Day: Nov11 theme for Remembrance Day/Veterans Day/etc

Postby EarthFurst » Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:43 pm

So today (November 11) is Remembrance Day/Veterans Day/Armistice Day:

"Veterans Day is an official United States public holiday, ... that honors military veterans; that is, persons who served in the United States Armed Forces."

"Remembrance Day (sometimes known informally as Poppy Day) is a memorial day ... to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty."

(ack! Last minute!)

(having difficulty thinking of anything by those three publishers)

either
(a) Maus ... about real people (in WW2), but who were not in military.
or (b) Fever Ridge ... about a real military unit, but a book where I'm unclear if real events/soldiers are depicted.

Maus: A Survivor's Tale (1986) - HC

(I haven't read it, but is fictionalized tale of a real unit.)

(not vouching for its quality. But it is apparently about WW2)

How about a Captain America comic? (I'm making an assumption is appropriate because of "ghosts" in title)

Captain America Theater Of War: Ghosts Of My Country (2009) - #1

(publisher) Marvel

Having difficulty thinking of anything else by those DC/Marvel publishers .. so how about The Forever War?
While science-fiction ... it "is based heavily on Haldeman's experiences in, and thoughts about, the Vietnam War".
