Considering the implications of using gender as an analytic category in examining cultural narratives of loss in wartime, the author looks at mens and womens experiences of war both at home and at the front.

The analysis spans the two World Wars to the Vietnam War and the recent war in Iraq, and draws on a wide range of auto/biographical sources from diaries and poetry to weblogs.
