From the Publisher"B.R. Burg in Gay Warriors, through a vivid series of pictures from the ancient to the contemporary world, presents clear evidence that homosexual desire between fighting men in most times and places has contributed to the effectiveness of armies. The modern homosexual/heterosexual distinction has changed this over the last three centuries, but there is every reason to expect that the rise of the gay and lesbian movement may serve to restore an older tradition. The book's original sources stimulate the imagination, and this is especially true of the navy and army courts-martial since 1700. The book is a major contribution to a heated contemporary controversy."
-Randolph Trumbach,Professor of History, Baruch College and the Grad Center, City University of New York
"Important...a truly fascinating reading on this controversial subject."
"The reprinted documents are what makes Burg's book valuable, and they allow readers to judge for themselves whether gays and lesbians deserve to be fully integrated into the modern military."
