Covert Walrus writes:

Well, poor literature about a recent conflict is nothing new, as this doggerel goes-
"On Waterloo's pocmarked plain
Lie many a gallant soldier slain.
But none of them, by she'll or shot,
Fell half as flat as Sir Walter Scott!"

But I'll agree with the consensus and say that The Great War had some contemporary and later dreadful literature, often for competing reasons. There is more merit in the average 80's potboiler set in Nam IME
