Reviews

"This is far more than an account of a historical event... War Without Fronts has far wider implications" -- Jonathan Mirsky * Literary Review *
"Professor Greiner, in this admirable translation by Anne Wyburd and Victoria Fern, scrupulously argued and carefully referenced, explains the failure of what is now known as the moral component of warfare, and therefore exactly how it was that the US lost" -- Allan Mallinson * The Times *
"A well-documented essay...an astonishing final section" -- Richard Gott * New Statesman *
"This comprehensive indictment of the Vietnam war was published first in Germany in 2007. One wonders how long it will be before a similar book can be written about the dehumanising effect on a new generation of American soldiers of the Iraq war, also fought against a guerrilla enemy in a foreign land" -- Conor O'Clery * Irish Times *
"Impressive study." * Contemporary Review *
