Reviews
"Empire between the Lines, a perceptive analysis of how British and French soldiers understood the role of empire and imperialism in the First World War, deepens in important ways our understanding of the war and those who fought it."--Martha Hanna, author of Your Death Would Be Mine: Paul and Marie Pireaud in the Great War
"This is a fine study of trench newspapers and the other kinds of amateur journalism British and French soldiers produced during the Great War. Elizabeth Stice shows that although soldiers spoke the language of empire, they fought not for empire but for their towns and villages. We see clearly the presence of the global in the local on the Western Front and the ways Orientalism distorted soldiers' attitudes when they fought on other fronts."--Jay Winter, author of Sites of Memory, Sites of Mourning: The Great War in European Cultural History
