"The author's inspiring overall argument and the thorough theoretical underpinning thereof, his in-depth analysis of cultural and media artefacts, and his creative treatment of a remarkably broad range of sources from different media and times make the reading of this book an enlightening experience for scholars in a wide variety of disciplines." --Leen Engelen, Media & Design Academy (KHLim), Catholic University Leuven
"A fascinating interdisciplinary approach to the construction of memory of the Great World War in diverse media. Williams' work should prove valuable to university students and professional scholars engaged in the history of memory from a variety of approaches and fields. Williams admirably expands our source base beyond the traditionally studied Anglo-American war narrative." --Jason Crouthamel, Grand Valley State University
"A brilliant book that deserves a large readership because it considers deep matters in an impressively intelligent way ... This is a stunning work of imagination at so many levels - the reader is challenged by its speculative links and suggestions." Winnipeg Free Press "A cutting-edge, intellectually ambitious, and thought-provoking analysis of the familiar Great War canon that raises fascinating new possibilities for interpreting these works." --Mark Sheftall, Duke University
