Named as one of Kansas City Star's top 100 books of 2011: http://www.kansascity.com/2011/12/01/3297721/the-stars-top-100-books-of-2011.html#ixzz1fPZcCN3Q 'Part of my admiration for this intelligent and judicious contribution to the BFI Film Classics - a series that by now may qualify as the most successful and title-heavy book series in the history of film criticism, perhaps in any language - is my conviction, which I share with Kozloff, that William Wyler's 1946, 171-minute masterpiece about returning American soldiers after the end of WW2 is, existentially speaking, a rare and almost unprecedented act of witness and social conscience for a Hollywood feature.' - Jonathan Rosenbaum
