Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'This is an excellent work, felicitously written and accessible to the general reader as well as specialists. The case studies provide lively examples of the issues being discussed, and Varley has gracefully incorporated many theoretical and historiographical perspectives on her topic. It will be the authoritative examination of the subject, sure to appeal to specialists in French History, Cultural Studies, Heritage Studies and Military Studies.'

- Professor Robert Aldrich, The University of Sydney, Australia
