"[There are many] fine things in this book--on such a diversity of themes as the poetic subgenre, 'Soldiers Bathing,' the growth of double-talk and euphemism, ...the peculiar merits of Edmund Blunden as poet and memoirist to which Fussell is admirably sensitive. The section on Wlfred Owen is also good, though some of the set pieces on major figures (Sassoon, David Jones) don't work as well. The detail of the book is continuously interesting, even to the skeptical....One's sense of the whole book is that on the major issues it is right, skillful and compassionate....[It] is an important contribution to our understanding of how we came to make [the Great War] part of our minds."Fussell, Paul is the author of 'Great War and Modern Memory', published 2000 under ISBN 9780195133325 and ISBN 0195133323.
