Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

First published in Germany in 1924 as a protest against war, this collection of gruesome photographs and disgusted, sarcastic captions (in many cases, juxtaposing official slogans and rhetoric with brutal reality) will shock and dismay the reader. The images here include the dead on battlefields, destroyed buildings, starving civilians, army executions, cemeteries and, perhaps most disturbing, shots of soldiers disfigured in battle. Kellner, a University of Texas professor, provides a biographical sketch of Friedrich, who, as a socialist, refused to serve in World War I, was placed in a mental institution and eventually went to jail. After the war, he became an anarchist and pacifist and founded the Anti-War Museum in Berlin, which was shut down by the Nazis in 1933. Friedrich, who survived the Nazi era, died in 1967.

War is horrible, it is the same. WW1 was the stupidist war ever started by Germany. I'm a veteran of the Gulf war 1990. I hate war even more. Though war is forced upon nations sometimes it is such sadness.

This book and its horrendous depictions should be required reading worldwide for anyone desiring to volunteer to be in the military.

This book was published after WW1 to show people what war was really like. It succeeded, and was banned in several countries.
It consists of black-and-white images with minimal text, pictures of dead bodies, or bits of bodies, on the battlefield, interspersed with pictures of the generals, far away, encouraging the troops. Bodies in trenches, hangings before and after, death poses; the last part is pictures of (live) people with parts of their face blown off, partly reconstructed by surgeons a century ago.
This is an unsanitized in-your-face account of what war is really about. No glory here, just pain and death.

While a little unstructured the book makes up for it with a belief in the message that war is at best futile and at worst a tragedy of unbelievable proportions, made more so by the fact that so much of the suffering is often hidden from view. This book highlights that suffering very graphically and suggests that it should be mandatory reading for anyone with the power to influence decisions regarding warfare and the involvement of communities and countries in such conflicts. Not for the faint hearted though.

Not something one wants to flip through every day, but surely a reminder of the brutal futility of war and of the profit engines which control national policies. It serves to remind us just how little political power common citizens have over their government's actions, how we (the masses) suffer directly and how the wealthy wage war for personal gain.
