"Meticulously researched and vitally important"

Nick Turse in the San Francisco Chronicle on 24 March 2013:

"Neer's "Napalm: An American Biography" is a meticulously researched and vitally important academic study of one of the most terrible weapons to emerge from a century that produced a seemingly endless supply of terrible weapons. [A] fascinating and long-overdue study of one of modern warfare's signature weapons. Neer has provided a valuable book that fills in historical gaps and sheds much-needed light on a history that many would rather forget."
