Abstract Narrative techniques are poweful tools in conveying dissent and critique in Anti War literature. This paper aims to study and analyse Dalton Trumbo’s Johnny Got His Gun and Kurt Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse Five with the objective of exploring the narrative techniques employed by each author to express dissent and critique against war. The paper also aims to trace the similar and distinct features of narrative styles in the two works to highlight how two different narratives which are the results two World Wars strive to achieve the same goal, that is, to portray the incomprehensible and utterly unjustified human cost of wars. sheds light on the impact war and the criticisms of war have on literature.
