In A Warring Nation, Wyatt-Brown updates his central theme of Southern honor with a deeply researched examination of the complex ways Southern honor and military honor are intertwined. He masterfully traces honor and shame from colonial America through both world wars and into the Second Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan. This is a rich and vivid work, well-wrought and powerful, as Wyatt-Brown again brilliantly challenges us to rethink our understanding of Southern honor and the American character.
