KIRKUS REVIEW

It is hard to say ""this is the best photographic book"" -- but at least we can say ""this is the best -- yet"". And that in a span of years when photography has been one of the important weapons, and the war has been wholly recorded through the lens. This is U. S. Camera's third volume, -- 1944, 1945, 1946. The current volume contains some of the pictures made famous in other collections -- pictures that are dramatic, history making, moving documents of human tragedy and human joy, and a record of the greatest panorama of devastation conceived by man. And the text offers almost as wide variety -- with relief in bits of humor and verse, as well as narrative and pen portraiture. This is a book to turn back to again and again, with its record of the march to Victory.

Publisher: U.S. Camera -- and Duell, Sloan & Pearce
