Loving Arms examines the war-related writings of five British women whose works explore the connections among gender, war, and story-telling. Evoking the famous "St. Crispin's Day" speech from Henry V and then her own father's account of being moved to tears on V-J Day because he had been too young to fight, Karen Schneider posits that the war story has a far-reaching potency. As widely defined and accepted, war stories are men's stories. If we are to hear another story of war, then we must list.
