Synopsis: View our feature on Kurt Vonneguts Armageddon in Retrospect . Published on the first anniversary of Kurt Vonneguts death in April 2007, Armageddon in Retrospect is a collection of twelve new and unpublished writings on war and peace. Written with Vonneguts trademark rueful humor, the pieces range from a visceral nonfiction recollection of the destruction of Dresden during World War II-a piece that is as timely today as it was then-to a painfully funny story about three privates and their fantasies of the perfect first meal upon returning home from war; to a darker and more poignant story about the impossibility of shielding our children from the temptations of violence. This is a volume that says as much about the times in which we live as it does about the genius of the man who wrote it. Also included here is Vonneguts last speech, as well as an assortment of his drawings, and an introduction by the authors son, Mark Vonnegut.
