About this product
- DescriptionIt is often said that war is 5% horror and 95% boredom. In this sense, military boredom is historically enduring as well as personally enduring for the soldiers who have to endure it. This book contributes to a deeper understanding -- historically, empirically and theoretically -- of the complex phenomenon of boredom in a military context.
