Course Description

Each novel reveals the changing faces of war and its effects on combatants, beginning with the world’s first “Total War” (the Civil War), followed by The War to End All Wars (World War I), The War Against Fascism (World War II), The First United Nations War (Korea), and The War of Internal U.S. Division (Vietnam).

Grading Policy

This is a substantial writing component course; SWC courses require no less than 4,000 words per semester; toward this end, the instructor will provide words and phrases that can be deleted to tighten the students’ writing and style. Clarity is also an objective to be reached through standard use of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics. Three papers of no less than 1500 words each--literary criticism of assigned novels (comparison/contrast; characterization/etc.)—will determine 100% of the course grade.
