Description
Tracing the arc of sexual violence coursing through Europe's twentieth century, from the Armenian genocide through Auschwitz and Algeria to Bosnia, this volume expands military history to include the realm of sexuality for both soldiers and civilians, both during war and in its aftermath. Examining both consensual romance and accounts of grotesque violence and intimate brutality, it contributes new insights into the history of sexuality in the twentieth century. The volume also broadens twentieth-century European history to include colonial and border areas (the Ottoman Empire in the 1910s, the Nazi-occupied Soviet Union in the 1940s, Algeria in the 1950s and 60s, and the wars in former Yugoslavia in the 1990s).
