""Tales of War"" is a melancholy, atypical, and occasionally surprising book by the author of The Gods of Pegana and The King of Elfland's Daughter. It was written for a political rather than artistic purpose, but because it was painfully inspired from life (and death) and because it is written by a great writer, it is far more than just a curio. It also crosses more than once into the fantastic realm, which is partly why it is of interest to readers of Dunsany's classic fantasy works. This special expanded edition adds a pair of previously uncollected war-related stories from the same time period: ""One More Tale"" and ""La Dernire Mobilisation," plus a new introduction written especially for this volume by Dunsany scholar Darrell Schweitzer.
