Reviews

"Splendid . . . chilling . . . Publishers are flooding the market with books describing various aspects of [the Great War]. But none of them can surpass this book's visual explanation."--Anthony Brandt (blog review)--Anthony Brandt "Completely Out of My Mind "
"The photographs collected in [this] book give modern readers a new perspective on the war. . . . Even from a thousand feet in the air, it's a crushing thing to see."--Nick Stockton, Wired--Nick Stockton "Wired "
"Stichelbaut and Chielens offer a meticulous work based on careful examination of WWI aerial photographs taken in Flanders, in northern Belgium. This volume investigates how the war, in all of its tragic dimensions, destroyed, modified, and altered features of the terrestrial topography and landscape."--P.D. Thomas, CHOICE-- (07/01/2014)
"[An] unusual, pathbreaking book . . . unique . . . accessible . . . forcefully clarifies how massive an endeavor the Great War really was . . . [and] presents awful and inspiring visual confirmation of the written record of the war in the trenches."--Cathal J./I>--Cathal J. Nolan "Michigan War Studies Review "
