Stories from wartime

The summer fiction issue of The New Yorker includes recollections on life in wartime from Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Sierra Leone, 1997), Aleksander Hemon (Yugoslavia, 1990), A.J. Liebling (Tunisia, 1943), Neil Sheehan (Vietnam, 1966), and others.

In the same issue, according to Slate: a “recently translated story by Italo Calvino, written in 1946, is the tale of two Italian partisan fighters who are captured by the Nazis.”
