Michael Roper is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Essex.
'Roper has not only written a highly readable, riveting account of certain emotions at war, but has also contributed something very new to the history of warfare generally. There is simply nothing else like this book currently in the field. It will serve as a model upon which further research is conducted.' Professor Joanna Bourke, Birkbeck College
