In The First Casualty, Deborah Harrison argues that within the Canadian military an environment exists where violence against women is both encouraged and hidden. A culture exists where military personnel often abuse their partners, with this fact remaining well hidden within the military community. The author uses the courageous voices of women who have survived domestic abuse to end the secrecy and create positive change.

- Barbara Bourrier-Lacroix Canadian Women's Health Network

" First Casualty offers analysis, as well as quotes and anecdotes, which are candid and readable."

- Halifax Daily News

"This work is sophisticated in its discussion of violence against women in the military....The research describes the subtleties and complexities of dealing with domestic violence. That the research and the book exist is a tangible demonstration of how we have moved in our thinking about domestic violence."

- Jane Gordon Canadian Review of Sociology and Anthropology, 40.4

"Harrison takes an honest and fair look at woman abuse in military communities. These stories are not only told by abused spouses, they are also the narratives of perpetrators, military social workers, police officers, chaplains and supervisors.
This book should be required reading for all military personnel."

- Briarpatch
