This eye-opening study gives a nuanced, provocative account of how German soldiers in the Great War experienced and enacted masculinity. Drawing on an array of relevant narratives and media, it explores the ways that both heterosexual and homosexual soldiers expressed emotion, understood romantic ideals, and approached intimacy and sexuality.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Crouthamel's fine work contributes to understandings of modern masculinity, European sexualities, the history of emotions, and World War I. The passionate stories it contains and its accessible and lively style would make it a good fit for an undergraduate or graduate seminar on World War I or European masculinities." (Lisa Fetheringill Zwicker, American Historical Review, Vol. 121 (4), October, 2016)

"One of the remarkable exceptions in the most recent wave of publication at the centenary of the war is the monograph Intimate History of the Front: Masculinity, Sexuality and Ordinary German Soldiers in the First World War, published in 2014 by the American Jason Crouthamel, who works on German and European history ... . Crouthamel's book is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of the First World War from a gender perspective." (Karen Hagemann, German History, June, 2016)

"Crouthamel provides a valuable contribution to the scholarship of both history and gender studies by investigating the spectrum of masculinity expressed by German soldiers in World War I. Especially interesting is his treatment of women's roles in managing the emotional and psychological lives of the soldiers. ... The depth of coverage as well as its accessibility makes Crouthamel's work suitable for both scholars and students working on the effects of war trauma on gender identity." (Barbara Hales, German Studies Review, Vol. 39 (2), 2016)
