Lori Grinker is a sensitive observer and interviewer. She has created some images of people of all walks of life, social strata, sex, and backgrounds that are not only superbly executed professional photographs, they are incredibly engaging. She has elected to design this book in a way that follows a timeline - from the present through the painful pages of the past. In doing so she has succinctly outlined each of the conflicts she is addressing and in doing so brings to our attention many facts about wars that have escaped our attention.
She also has taken artistic license by creating images, such as the cover photograph, which at first glance seems to be a relaxing, floating, peaceful swimmer - or is this a patient in a treatment bath after losing the lower parts of his legs?

Grinker's photographs combined with the firsthand accounts of the human toll of war compel and engage on every page. Grinker poignantly expresses this tragic topic leaving each and every subject their every dignity and respect.
