Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Piehler, who is an archivist and oral historian, undertakes to document how each of America's wars has been memorialized in monuments, cemeteries, holidays, and fraternal groups. The emphasis is definitely on the tangible; film, video, music, and literature are barely mentioned. The accounts of the social and political disagreements over the purpose and form of public remembrance synthesize a great deal of heretofore scattered or inaccessible information and will attract scholars, but more attention to popular culture would have enhanced the book for both researcher and general reader. An optional purchase for academic libraries.

Review

“A sprightly, informative, insightful, and compelling tale of how we honor those men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. Kurt Piehler blends politics, memory, culture, regionalism, race, and religion into a fascinating mix. Recommended without reservation.”—Stephen E. Ambrose, author of D-Day: June 6, 1944 and Band of Brothers

“The accounts of the social and political disagreements over the purpose and form of public remembrance synthesize a great deal of heretofore scattered or inaccessible information.”—Library Journal

“An important addition to the growing body of literature on the construction and function of the memory of war.”—Journal of American History

Format: Hardcover
This is a study of how Americans have commemorated military events and people, from the Revolution through the Vietnam War era. Many footnotes, photos, historical anecdotes. Of equal interest to psychologists, those interested in the national character or history.
