“War” – the anthem song of the ‘60’s counter-cultural revolution, argues that war is good for “absolutely, nothin'!” But is it? In this class, we will trace America’s wars through the eyes of the men and women who have fought them. From the Civil War, the First and Second World Wars, Vietnam, and the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, in novels, memoirs, film, music, poetry, and essays, using discussion, interviews, and writing, we will attempt to answer this question: “War, what is it good for?”
