Nothing can prepare you for Anthony Loyd's portrait of war. It is the story of the unspeakable terror and the visceral, ecstatic thrill of combat, and the lives and dreams laid to waste by the bloodiest conflict that Europe has witnessed since the Second World War. Born into a distinguished military family, Loyd was raised on the stories of his ancestors' exploits and grew up fascinated with war. Unsatisfied by a brief career in the British Army, he set out for the killing fields in Bosnia. It was there--in the midst of the roar of battle and the life-and-death struggle among the Serbs, Croatians, and Bosnian Muslims--that he would discover humanity at its worst and best. Profoundly shocking, poetic, and ultimately redemptive, this is an uncompromising look at the brutality of war and its terrifyingly seductive power.
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.
Evidence addresses the issue of crime and justice in war. It challenges us to view this particular crime as a rational, considered and planned process rather than as a series of random events. It dispels the argument that crimes were not committed in Kosovo.
