This is simply one of the best photojournalistic book ever published. On top of that the essays are extrtemely interesting and complete the narrative of this amazing journey. A bit pricy but worth evey penny.

Great photography. Not much more needs to be said. If you know who these photographers are, you would not be basing your decision to purchase on opinions of strangers, and would just buy the damn thing already.

6 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Umkulu on January 3, 2005
Format: Hardcover
„War" ist der eindrucksvollste Bildband der in der letzten Zeit erschien. Die Photographen einer der zur Zeit angesagtesten Agentur haben dafür ihre besten Bilder zusammengestellt. Die vom New York des 11. Septembers, über Afghanistan einen Bogen hin zum Irak schlagen und so ein Stück aktuellse Zeitgeschichte dem Betrachter auf eindrückliche Art und Weise nahe bringen.

Unter diesen nehmen jene Aufnahmen von James Nachtwey eine Stellung ein, die nur schwer von anderen erreicht wird.

Die Wiedergabe der Bilder und die gesamte Gestaltung des Buches ist sehr gut, und wird noch um einleitende Essays der Photographen ergänzt.

This is one of the best pieces of photojournalism available on the beginning of the Second Gulf War. However, that fact makes this book hard to revisit. It has sat on my shelf ever since I first sat down to examine it pages.
