Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Crimean War and American Civil War through the two World Wars, from Vietnam to the Balkans and Afghanistan, photographers have been drawn to the battlefront. This book selects 200 of the most powerful war photographs, together with poignant testaments by soldiers and battlefield witnesses, to make an unforgettable tableau. Among these arresting images are Mathew Brady's Civil War pictures from Gettysburg; those taken from the Cape to Cairo during the colonial "Scramble for Africa"; those from the armageddon of the First World War; the World War II photos of Robert Capa and Margaret Bourke-White; and those of Don McCullin and Larry Burrows from Vietnam. The brute strength of military hardware is contrasted with the vulnerability of the human body, as artillery, tanks, planes, and aircraft carriers are set against infantry. Heart-stopping images of the trenches in WWI, the empty steppes of Russia during WWII, and the street fighting in Afghanistan testify to the skill of the photographers.
