Fighting and Writing

Book Pages: 328 Illustrations: 8 illustrations Published: March 2021

Author: Luise S. White


Fighting and Writing offers an often-harrowing look into the hearts and minds of the men who fought in the struggle for Rhodesia. With her unique combination fearlessness and provocation, Luise S. White asks whether war is always about killing and whether killing is the most significant thing about war. She asks us to stare hard at these discomfiting questions, giving a whole new meaning to the history of war stories.” — Antoinette Burton, author of The Trouble with Empire: Challenges to Modern British Imperialism

“Luise White is that scholar of rare analytic and literary ability who can tell history's most sensational stories differently. Prostitution, vampire rumors, or now, in Fighting and Writing, the memoirs of white soldiers in a racist war. These are the unlikely starting points from which White leads her readers through histories that become more rich and more relevant with every page.” — Danny Hoffman, author of The War Machines: Young Men and Violence in Sierra Leone and Liberia
