Tales of Soldiers and Civilians by Ambrose Bierce
Book DescriptionQuesting after Pancho Villa's revolutionary forces, Ambrose Bierce rode into Mexico in 1913 and was never seen again. He left behind him the"Devil's Dictionary"and a remarkable body of short fiction.This new collection gathers some of Bierce's finest stories, including the celebrated Civil War fictions '"An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge"' and '"Chickamauga"', his macabre masterpieces, and his tales of supernatural horror.Reminiscent of Poe, these stories are marked by a sardonic humour and a realistic study of tense emotional states.
