|Notes||Collection of six short stories by six different writers associated with Naturalism. All the stories concern the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. |
The aim of the collection was to promote the ideals of Naturalism, by treating the events of the Franco-Prussian War in a realistic and often unheroic way, in contrast to officially approved patriotic views of the war.
