Soldiers and warriors have always related their combat experience to an audience, be it in songs, memoirs, or letters from the front. These accounts have reflected on their personal feats, on their memories and the corresponding emotions, and on the notions of the individual's role in the greater contexts of the war. Audiences—family members, friends, local communities, or a broad public—have used these accounts as sources of information and have responded to them in individual letters, communal ceremonies, or public debates.
