MEDIA REVIEWS

"This wide-ranging collection of essays provides a wealth of fascinating insights into the multifaceted experience of war." - Celia Britton, Professor of French, University College London

"This volume constitutes an impressive contribution to our broadening understanding of how war has shaped the history of France, and is a model for exploring the history of war in other parts of the world." - Leonard V. Smith, Frederick B. Artz Professor of History, Oberlin College

"From the asphyxiation of Algerians by French troops in the 1840s to the story of French civilians sheltering from British bombs in caves outside Le Havre in 1941, from the impact of the Great War on the painting of Leger to recent depictions of the Algerian War in film, this is a stimulating and imaginative collection of essays on the impact of war on the social, cultural and political history of France." - Julian Jackson, Professor of History, Queen Mary, University of London

"Adopting an interdisciplinary approach to examine political commemoration, historical memory, community and collective trauma and cultural identity, from controversies over monuments and icons of the Resistance to literary accounts of the wars effects in Europe and the colonial world and their aftermath, this collection will be indispensable to scholars of French history, literature and culture." - H. Adlai Murdoch, Associate Professor of French and Francophone Literature, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
