    • Excerpt: World War II has given the world many great books, yielding some of the best films of all time, including The Best Years of Our Lives (1946), A Generation (1955), and Army of Shadows (1969). Now, we have another: Memoir of War, based on the classic fact-based novella La douleur (1987) by French author Marguerite Duras.
