Unless we’re actual combatants, the lens through which we view war is almost always that of the war correspondent, using either images, or words, or both. Here is an oversized volume which portrays in stark, and often horrifying detail how wars were documented over the past two centuries, since the dawn of photography. Graphics, propaganda posters, newspaper headlines, and other ephemera are liberally interspersed, as are seldom seen photos of lesser known wars.
