Synopsis: In photographs and poetry, Fragments of Peace in a World at War takes the reader on an emotional journey behind the front lines of World War II in the Middle East, North Africa, and Italy. Jock Cobb registered as a Conscientious Objector during the war and volunteered with the American Field Service Ambulance Corps. A student of famed photographer Laura Gilpin, he converted his ambulance into a field darkroom and returned home with more than a thousand black-and-white negatives that documented his experience on the front lines. After the war, Cobb immersed himself in medical school, family, and his career, while his wartime negatives sat in a box for sixty years. In the past decade, Cobb re-opened the box and the difficult memories that the images evoked. The result is Fragments of Peace in a World at War, a collection of 107 photographs described in poetry and narrative through the voices of Cobb and his longtime friend and fellow ambulance driver, Charles Edwards. A unique perspective on World War II, Cobb's book is a priceless contribution to the fields of photography, history, and peace studies that will benefit those who seek to understand the enduring consequences of war.

About the Author: Dr. John C. (Jock) Cobb, MD, MPH, was born in Boston in 1919. After graduating from Harvard with a degree in astronomy, he served in Quaker work camps in Mexico, where he worked on earthquake relief and public health. In World War II, Jock served as a volunteer ambulance driver with the American Field Service in Syria, North Africa, and Italy. Returning home in 1944, he earned a medical degree from Harvard and trained in Pediatrics and Public Health at Johns Hopkins. His career has been marked by work with the Indian Health Service in New Mexico, the Population Council in Pakistan, the World Health Organization in Tunisia, Indonesia and Fiji, and as Professor and Chairman of Preventive Medicine at the University of Colorado Medical School. He lives with his wife Holly in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
