Disappointing and dull. I fail to understand why this won a history award. It reads like a PhD thesis but it is probably more repetitive. This topic deserves a much clearer and decisive treatment. Far more case studies and anecdotes would have given the reader a better understanding of the day-to-day trials and tribulations of wounded soldiers. Instead, Larsson relies on a few interviews and constant repetition of government material.
