McDevitt, Jack -- A Talent for War

Unusual war book: set two centuries after the war. An amateur archaelogist dies, leaving notes about Great Secret. His nephew must delve back into stories about the great war heroes; also poetry, monuments, lingering prejudice, mad historical societies. A few contemporary chase scenes and assassination attempts, too, amid the research. The Secret is less interesting than I'd hoped, but the picture of the aftermath of a culture-defining war is really well done.
