Fighting Talk by James Inglis
Book DescriptionFighting Talk captures the drama, the heroism, the tragedy and the absurdity that unfolds in times of conflict, in the theatre of war. This is much more than simply an evocative anthology of fighting words. James Inglis provides a thoroughly researched and engaging discussion of the social, political and military context that the words were spoken in. He examines the motives of the speakers, the style of their language and, in many cases, their manipulative verbal tricks.
