since it is a novel....i would like to stick with gone with the wind by margaret mitchell, and north and south by john jakes both of which talk about the american civil war.

Catch-22 by Joseph Heller, Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes, The Young Lions by Irwin Shaw are all my all time favourites!!!

Now this is no mean achievement...the fact that U managed to finish War N Peace!!!Wink I cant bind myself to read it coz the size really is tad intimidating...Love Tolstoy's works though...Anna Kernina is just amazing, wud love to read W&P n Ressurrection...

anyway I am going the wild goose way...
I dun really read too many novels that can be branded as "war related"...
I loved Les Miserables...it has the French war...
