Story the Soldiers Wouldn't Tell

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

"Lowry, a physician and medical historian, weaves a fascinating history of a little-discussed aspect (sex) of a much-discussed subject (the Civil War)." - Library JournalDrawing on a wide variety of primary sources - from letters that escaped the censoriousness of their writers' descendants to court-martial reports, prostitutes' diaries, and the modest remaining examples of very immodest Victorian erotica - Lowry argues that, in spite of Victorian mores, a thoroughly normal amount of sexual activity went on under the covers and in other places during the war."- BooklistThis is the first book to cover all aspects of sexuality during the Civil War. Based on area original sources, including the soldiers' jokes, songs, letters, and diaries it provides a extraordinary look at life beyond the battlefield.Explore the secret life of the men in blue and grey - from pornography, bawdy songs, and prostitution to stories of love and marriage.
