Rezension: "This anthology fills an important gap in the scholarly literature about wars and American culture. This is an emerging subdiscipline of the fields of military as well as cultural history, and the essays represent some cutting edge work in the subject."--Robert Wooster, Regents Professor of History, Texas A&M University--Corpus Christi--Robert Wooster (12/18/2012)
