This book, through a vivid series of pictures from the ancient to the contemporary world, presents clear evidence that homosexual desire between fighting men in most times & places has contributed to the effectiveness of armies. The modern homosexual/heterosexual distinction has changed this over the last 3 centuries, but there is every reason to expect that the rise of the gay & lesbian movement may serve to restore an older tradition. In ancient Greece & Rome, in Crusader campaigns & pirate adventures, same-sex romances were a common & condoned part of military culture. From the Peloponnesian War to the Gulf War, from Achilles to Lawrence of Arabia gays & lesbians have played a crucial but often hidden role in military campaigns. But recent debates over the legality of gay service in the military & the »don't ask, don't tell« policy have obscured this rich aspect of military history.
