InTales of Soldiers and Civilians and Other Stories, humor and horror paint a bleak picture of war, marked by violence, isolation and looming madness. Despite the subject matter, the macabre tone is balanced by the author's satirical prose and signature levity.

Tales of Soldiers and Civilians and Other Stories is a literary collection from writer and veteran Ambrose Bierce. The leading title focuses on the realities of battle and various conflicts in the field. Stories such as "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge," "One of the Missing" and "Chickamauga," are heavily influenced by the American Civil War. Others focus on civilians who experience a different kind of tragedy in a domestic setting.

Ambrose Bierce is considered one of the most prolific and influential short story writers of all-time. His works have left an indelible mark on countless authors including Ernest Hemingway and Stephen Crane. Bierce is often considered a master of realistic fiction, alongside Edgar Allen Poe and H.P. Lovecraft.
