Summary
"Fighting Talk captures the drama, the heroism, the tragedy and the absurdity that unfold in times of conflict, in the theatre of war. War is the stage which the players, the fighting men and women and their leaders, experience the extremes of human emotion and character terror, rage, despair, grief, heroism, cowardice, cruelty, mateship and humour all of which are reflected in the script to war represented by speeches, slogans, taunts and vaunts and dying words. This is much more than an evocative anthology of fighting words. Author James Inglis provides a thoroughly researched and engaging discussion of the words social, political and military context, and examines the motives of the speakers, their style of language and in many cases their manipulative verbal tricks. The consequences and resonances of the words are also examined, adding further texture and substance to this intriguing collection."--Provided by publisher
