Reviews

"Schneider impresses by her scholarly diligence in marshalling so many relevant literary and sociological sources and by occasional displays of her own critical finesse." -- Albion


"These writers speak to the large structures that maintain gendered hierarchy and which therefore, lead to more war. War is itself." -- Choice


"Schneider does an admirable job of presenting a thoughtful analysis about women writers of the Second World War." -- Novel


"Schneider points out the continuing and compelling fascination war holds for women and men and analyzes how narratives work to perpetuate the attraction." -- South Atlantic Review


"From her ironic title on, Schneider draws into her orbit war in a wider sphere, that between the sexes." -- Times Literary Supplement


"Examines the fine and fascinating line between the battle of nations and the battle of the sexes.... A welcome addition to the growing list of studies about women writers and war." -- Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature


"Forcefully and convincingly argues against the contention that the Second World War yielded very little literature." -- War, Literature, and the Arts
