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

Dear Harriette--I'm so sorry to hear of Paul's death. He was a great man and also a good friend to me and Ben, as were you! I was just quoting him re Pasadena to my friend Allan as we exited the Laemmle 7 to have dinner nearby. But I am also happy to hear you're in Oregon(?) because I will be nearer to you! Am moving in a few weeks to live in S.F. near my daughter et al. I would very much like to visit you after I settle in. Much love, Robin Larsen
