Children and War PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Children and War free pdf Although the scale on which children are affected by war may be greater today than at any time since the world wars of the 20th century, children have been a part of conflict since the beginning of warfare. This volume shows that boys and girls have routinely contributed to home front war efforts, armies have accepted under-aged soldiers for centuries and war-time experiences have always affected the ways in which grown-up children of war percieve themselves and their societies. The essays in this collection range from explorations of childhood during the American Revolution and of the writings of free black children during the Civil War, to children's home front war efforts during World War II, representations of war and defeat in Japanese children's magazines and growing up in war-torn Liberia. This text provides a historical context for two centries of children's multi-faceted involvement with war.
