Review of the hardback: '… delicately nuanced, intricately subtle …' The Times Literary Supplement
Review of the hardback: 'Santanu Das has written an original, closely argued and highly detailed account of the way in which touch - the physical interaction with one's surroundings and one's fellow soldiers - defined the experience of the war and the ways in which it was recorded. … it is packed with original research and is uncommonly well written.' Daily Telegraph
Review of the hardback: 'Touch and Intimacy melds a wide range of sources into a brilliantly convincing whole. Methodologically, it makes use of a sophisticated and erudite mix of theory …' CLIO
'There are some beautiful and revealing passages of writing here …' The Ivor Gurney Society Journal
The First World War ravaged the male body on an unprecedented scale, yet soldiers experienced moments of great tenderness and physical intimacy in the trenches.
