In the war novel, In Harm’s Way, by Doug Stanton, the nonfiction genre changes the story of the survivors by accounting for real world events, and direct accounts of said survivors, which
consequently changes the emotion for an apathetic sympathy, for the characters, to a worldly empathy, with the people involved in the story.
How does the nonfiction genre change the story of the survivors in the war novel to be more impactful than if it was fiction? Does the nonfiction genre make the stories of these survivors through
all there perils sound more heroine?
