Industry Reviews

"It has to be good news that Prost's exemplary study can now be appreciated by a new generation of monoglot readers." --History

"Prost's conclusions are persuasively argued, and historians of the verteran experience elsewhere would do well to take his book as a yardstick against which to measure their own work." --Canadian Military History
