About this book
Subtitled, "Soldiers' Inside View Of War". A collection of photography by American soldiers in Iraq and other modern wars. Argues for a fresh 'unofficial' genre of war photography. *Also appeared in September 2010's Buyer's Notes*
Soldiers have taken photographs of war and its atrocities for more than 100 years. This title traces this unacknowledged genre of photography since the origins of popular photography in the Boer War. It discusses how the images have been used and asks what effect might the wider appreciation of soldiers' pictures have on the perception of war?
