The picture of the long, endless march of the children, thousands of them, their
robes, their smocks, their crosses, moving slowly across the horizon, is such a
powerful image that it could be cinematic.73 The most popular twentieth-century
American work of fiction to nourish itself from the Children's Crusade is Kurt
Vonnegut's acclaimed anti-war novel Slaughterhouse-Five or the Children's
Crusade: A Duty-Dance with Death (1969), which was both a best-seller and a
critical success.

By doing this in the opening chapter of the novel, the author-as-autobiographer
lets the reader know how difficult this topic had been for him to tackle. “As a
trafficker in climaxes and thrills and characterization and wonderful dialogue and

Perhaps it is dimly recalled from illustrations in children's literature, from
children's encyclopedias, or from popular histories such as H. G. Wells's unlikely
bestseller The Outline of History (1920). Somewhat more recently, public
consciousness of it was reawakened by Kurt Vonnegut's powerful novel
Slaughterhouse-Five or the Children's Crusade; a Duty- Dance with Death (1969)
. In fact, it was during the 1960s, a time of radical youth movements — antiwar
and pro-civil rights — that a ...

For instance, the events in Slaughterhouse-Five are not told chronologically; an
episode in the present triggers an episode in the past or into the future. Even its
title page is radically different from other novels' title pages: To its supplemental
label, The Children's Crusade, Slaughterhouse-Five adds a second subtitle: A

schizophrenic” narrative explaining who he is and where he has been. We are
engaged in the ...
