The books deal primarily with primary source interpretation from the First and Second World Wars, so the material in them was helpful for my Fulbright research project. Writing the review was a challenging experience but ultimately very rewarding. I learned a lot about academic culture and of course quite a bit about my own field of Modern European History. The number of edits and rewrites was humbling, but once I got it "just right," the feeling was incredible!
