Pocketbooks is a collaborative publishing program uniting galleries, publishers, artists, writers, poets, and more from around the world in a series of small, beautifully designed, and collectable paperback books. The fifteen planned volumes in the series will be published over the next two years. When complete they will provide a compendium of art forms and ideas offering a generalist vision of contemporary culture at the start of the twenty-first century.

From Walter Scott to George Mackay Brown, from the Jacobite uprising to the Second World War -- Scotland's military history has made a significant contribution to the nation's literature. The twenty-four stories gathered here, both factual and fictional, offer an insight into ordinary people's experiences of war.
