KIRKUS REVIEW

Photographic history of the war -- some 1250 pictures selected from over a million examined; 100,000 words of graphic text, captions, transition pieces, etc. Biography -- history -- personalities -- action pictures; the roots put down before the war as we know it in Ethiopia, Manchuria, Spain. Some of the pictures are superb -- unforgettable; some are chronologically important -- otherwise nondescript; there are occasional non sequiturs in arrangement, a few inaccuracies of statement. There's news value here -- and challenge to all that it must not happen again.
