Popular notions of women during the Civil War center on self-sacrificing nurses, romantic spies, or brave ladies maintaining their home front in the absence of their men. This conventional picture of gender roles does not tell the entire story, however. Men were not the only ones to march off to war. Women bore arms and charged into battle, too. Even officers were not immune, as illustrated by a section in the book ‘A Subaltern’s War’, published variously as either Charles Edmund Carrington or Charles Edmonds (a pseudonym). At one point during the Battle of Passchendaele, Carrington was separated from his men and struggled to get back.

Némirovsky died in the camp but the first two books and her notebooks were published after the war.

But writing about war can be tricky: Some readers might be sensitive about graphic depictions of war and violence; others may have a hard time understanding what’s happening if you don’t go into detail. Here’s how to write battle scenes that are accurate and effective.

War children are those born to a native parent and a parent belonging to a foreign military force (usually an occupying force, but also military personnel stationed at military bases on foreign soil). Having a child by a member of a belligerent force, throughout history and across cultures, is often considered a grave betrayal of social values. Commonly, the native parent (usually a woman) is. Summary Book 2, Chapter 1: Branches of the Art of War In this chapter Clausewitz describes the various "branches" of the "art of war." He describes at length the necessity of separating tactics from former is "the theory of the use of military forces in combat" while the latter is the "theory of the use of combats for the object of the war.".
