** Cowardice: A Brief History by Chris Walsh

 

Cowardice, what an interesting topic! Alas, Cowardice: A Brief History seems mostly interested in cowardice on the battlefield, or at least in war settings, which seems to limit the adventure way too tightly for my taste. That being said, the author does a great job exploring how the criteria for courage and cowardice have changed over time, especially as the tactics of war have changed.
