Granta 96: War Zones

War will never be a thing of the past. We only hope so. The slaughter of 1914–18 was not, after all, ‘the war to end all wars’ and who now believes that the invasion of Iraq was the first step to peace in the Middle East? Wars change their nature, but states and people continue to pursue the ancient aims of conquest, security, justice and revenge.
