War and Remembrance: The Story of the American Battle Monuments Commission
Lexington, KY: University Press of Kentucky, (2018). Hardcover. In this "first comprehensive study of the American Battle Monuments Commission, Thomas H. Conner traces how the agency came to be crated by Congress in the aftermath of World War I, how the cemeteries and monuments the agency built were designed and their locations chosen, and how the commemorative sites have become important 'outposts of remembrance' on foreign soil. War and Remembrance powerfully demonstrates that these monuments - living sites that embody the role Americans played in the defense of freedom far from their own shores - assist in understanding the interconnections of memory and history and serve as an inspiration to later generations" (back cover).
