Despite its broad subtitle, Crimes of War: Guilt and Denial in the Twentieth Century focuses mainly on WWII and mostly on Germany's struggle to come to terms with Nazi atrocities. Edited by historians Omer Bartov, Atina Grossmann and Mary Nolan, this anthology of 13 scholarly essays includes Saul Friedl nder on German society's knowledge of Jewish extermination, Gudrun Schwartz's look at the role of women in the Nazi military and Robert G. Moeller on Germans' collective memory of the devastating battle of Stalingrad. There's also an investigation by Marilyn Young of American involvement in (and denial of) the civilian massacre at No Gun Ri during the Korean War. (Mar.)
