'A brilliantly insightful, very moving examination of three writers on the battlefield. LeFanu reveals each of her subjects to be engaged in his or her own private war, at the same time as they participated in the war that came to define the cruelty and confusion of the British Empire.' -- Lara Feigel, author of 'Free Woman'; 'The Bitter Taste of Victory'; and 'The Love-charm of Bombs'
