KIRKUS REVIEW

Carl Mydans (the well known photojournalist) and his wife (also a journalist) have isolated twenty-five of the fifty armed conflicts which have broken out since the Missouri peace of 1945 in China, in Greece, Algeria, Hungary, Cuba, the Congo, Korea, Angola, Vietnam, Israel, etc. The face of war is always the same--so are its roots (fear, ambition, vengeance, hate) and the only alternative to death in our time is peace. A somber comment and intelligent investigation of our dreadful legacy--to which the 100 pages of grouped photographs from many sources should provide further impact.
