This remarkable volume chronicles a century and a half when the world has rarely been at peace—and when the lenses of photographers have never ceased to capture the fury, ferocity, and barbarity of war. From the Crimea, through the Franco-Prussian War, the Boer War, the First and Second World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, and the Gulf War, to the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq—all the world’s major armed con?icts are portrayed with shocking immediacy. A ground-breaking portrayal of modern warfare, featuring the work of the world’s greatest photojournalists, including Margaret Bourke White, Frank Hurley, Edgar Snow, Luigi Barzini, and Robert Capa.
