“The volume contains not only a broad tapestry of case studies, but also suggestions for future research and pointers to newly available or soon-to-be-available technological possibilities, there is surely something here for all. Historians from other fields, such as military history, cultural history, and the history of science and technology will likewise read this volume with great interest and profit from the change of perspective afforded by its cross-disciplinary content.” (Lena Moser, Imago Mundi, Vol. 70 (2), May, 2018)
