Illustrated with unique and rare photographs from The Times (London) archives, War: A Photo History is a lucid and brutally honest depiction of war. The introduction of cameras to the front lines dramatically altered the way we view war. This narrative fleshes out the original dynamic between what occurred on the ground and what was seen and perceived back home -- the significance of which cannot be overstated for societies that are now very used to images of war in the media.
Many of the images in War: A Photo History have not had widespread exposure, and this gathering of unseen and relatively unknown viewpoints will be valuable to the historian and photographer alike.
