Behind every soldiers death lies a story, a tale not just of the cold mathematics of the battlefield but of an individual human being who gave his life. What psychological and cultural pressures brought him to his fate? What lies and truths convinced him to march towards his death? Covering warfare from prehistory through the present day, The Last Full Measure tells these soldiers stories, ultimately capturing the experience of war as few books ever have.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A great achievement of research, perception, and fine writing. Few other books have managed to convey the true experience of war with such power and clarity. -- Antony Beevor, author of D-Day and Stalingrad
Stephenson brings 'the face of battle' even closer to us than John Keegan did over thirty years ago. -- Hew Strachan, author of The First World War and Chichele Professorship of the History of War, Oxford University
Intense [and] grippingly specific ... honors the fallen by making their experiences fiercely, viscerally understandable. -- Janet Maslin * The New York Times *
Comprehensive, perceptive, and evocative, this is a must-read -- Dennis Showalter, author of Tannenberg and former president of the Society for Military History
