Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Riveting.” New York Times
“No one writes about war with greater authenticity and eloquence than Paul Fussell. The Boys’ Crusade is an extraordinarily powerful account that is at once poignant and searing. It is a truth-telling of a very high order from one of our finest men of letters.”  Rick Atkinson, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of An Army at Dawn 
“Fussell writes vividly and sardonically…painting extraordinary scenes at every turn…A bracing corrective…and just right for a new season of war.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Written with passion and fidelity, The Boys’ Crusade is a book that will not leave you after you have put it down. If there is a more powerful personal account of the ground war in Western Europe I have yet to encounter it.” Donald L. Miller, author of The Story of World War II
