RaveThe New York Times Book Review... urgent ... The atrocities in Our Bodies, Their Battlefields horrify, as they should. Lamb does society a service by forcing us to look ... [Lamb] provides one of the first exhaustive examinations of sexual violence as a deliberate weapon, used to inflict terror and humiliation. Her book is painful to read but should be required for everyone interested in military and global affairs ... She travels through Asia, Africa, Europe and South America to provide an intimate picture of what it’s like to be abused and forgotten ... Despite the barbarity, Lamb’s humane portraits of survivors kept my attention. I grew invested in the women and felt compelled to listen to their stories ... In the conclusion of her book, Lamb writes, \'Every time I walk past a war memorial I wonder why women’s names aren’t on it.\' With Our Bodies, Their Battlefields, she provides a monument of sorts.
