Paul Fussell: His personal military history was included in the US Army leadership manual in the late 1980s. His insights on combat made a tremendous impact on me, and I used his "lessons" in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. I continue to use his "lessons" as a US History teacher today. I will never forget what he taught me about real combat and how good life is!

I was introduced to Paul Fussell's writing via his works 'Wartime' and 'Doing Battle', and realized instantly that he was an author of the finest caliber.
His WW II testimonial in the Ken Burns 2007 documentary: 'The War' was rivetting.
Maybe the finest essay written about the controversial end of that conflict is:
'Thank God for the Atomic Bomb'; as someone here already said, it is a must-read.
He enriched so many with his razor-sharp wit and honesty. He will be terribly missed.

Paul Fussell was my intellectual hero since I took my first class with him in 1955 at Rutgers He supervised my Henry Rutgers thesis and then I took his graduate seminar in 18th century English. My son then took his class 30 years later at Penn. His public intellectual life was exemplary. He will be missed. Deepest sympathies to the Fussell family. Stephen Wertheimer
