Genre Focus (February 2011): War Stories

For the month of February, Kong Chian Library will be focusing on the literary genre of War Stories.

From Senior Librarian Kris Koo:

In conjunction with the upcoming Total Defence Day, Kong Chian Library has displayed a collection of gripping war stories by some major writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. These stories remind us of the human dimension of war: the achievement and endurance as well as the anguish.

Now available are inspiring stories of action, courage, fear and friendship during wartime which are sure to grip you to the very end. Also ready to be borrowed are a number of Academy Award-winning war films of love, loss and heroism, must-see cinematic events that both enchant and enthrall:

  • Akira Kurosawa’s Dreams

  • King Arthur: Director’s Cut
