From the Combat guidelines:

This literary magazine was conceived as a successor to its wartime  namesake, formerly published by Albert Camus, the existentialist philosopher and resistance fighter. This little magazine is in the tradition of the "National Tribune" and "The Land We Love", the "Century" and "The Southern Magazine"; but authors should aspire to the intellectual rigor of the "New Individualist Review", and to emulate the verbal breadth in "Antaeus". This periodical is not a celebration of war; but is an acknowledgement of what war has begotten. Although war stories per se are not excluded, this publication is focused on interpreting the meaning of such encounters. Compositions should be both transparently evocative and poignantly authentic; but valid speculations and legitimate retrospectives are not precluded, as long as they somehow refer to one of the touchstones common to veterans and survivors. Cognizance of contextual elements integral to human conflict constitutes an essential criterion for publication. Relevant submissions for this publication that reveal and explore the ramifications of war upon combatants, noncombatants, and their families will be welcomed.
