In observance of Remembrance Day, we are airing our 1997 interview with the late Paul Fussell. His award-winning book, The Great War and Modern Memory was a ground-breaking work that explored how war is remembered and mythologised in literature and in life.
An American war veteran and renowned academic, Paul Fussell died in May at the age of 88.
