"Boes's exhaustive, meticulous survey should come to represent an exemplar for scholarship seeking to document the lasting significance of an author's work."--Publishers Weekly
"Boes' superb account is based on extensive archival research, including Mann's personal letters, as well as keen assessments of his novels."--The National Interest
"Thomas Mann's War is important and timely. It is a reminder that literature is one of the first things to come under attack when authoritarianism takes hold, something for which there is ample evidence in our present moment, from China to Russia, from Turkey to Saudi Arabia."--The Wall Street Joural
