"Each chapter usually focuses on a select work, generally poetry, letters, or specific authors. Impressive use has been made of this source material throughout, so that collectively the essays have drawn out a wide range of nuances, tropes, and emotional inflections ... Ultimately, this collection explores emotions and war, regardless of what emotions may be evoked or wars fought or not, in a successful and very focused study that makes a useful contribution to history of emotions studies." (Hilary Jane Locke, Parergon, Vo. 33 (1), 2016)
