Description:Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 452...Signed by Author. Hardcover. First Edition. First Printing. 452 pages. As New in As New dust jacket. The authors' account on subject. One of the most important literary and cinematic events of our time. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. The book is published in conjunction with the documentary of the same name by Public Broadcasting Service (PBS), which aired in September 2007. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Ken Burns' documentary account of the Second World War in book form. "The vivid voices that speak from these pages are not those of historians or scholars. They are the voices of ordinary men and women who experienced and helped to win the most devastating war in history, in which between 50 and 60 million lives were lost. Focusing on the citizens of four towns (Luverne, Minnesota; Sacramento, California; Waterbury, Connecticut; and Mobile, Alabama), 'The War' follows more than forty people from 1941 to 1945. Woven largely from their memories, the compelling, unflinching narrative unfolds month by bloody month, with the outcome always in doubt. All the iconic events are here, from Pearl Harbor to the liberation of the concentration camps, but we also move among prisoners-of-war and Japanese-American internees, defense workers, schoolchildren, and families who struggled simply to stay together while their men were shipped off to Europe, the Pacific, and North Africa. Enriched by maps and hundreds of photographs, including many never published before, this is an intimate, profoundly affecting chronicle of the war that shaped our world" (Publisher's blurb). "As told, the accounts faithfully reflect the moods of America's war years, such as anxieties for the safety of loved ones, racial tensions, the frightfulness of combat, and the sorrow of loss. The photographs accentuate the personal and emotional, with close-ups of haggard soldiers and marines numerous among frames of devastation the war visited wherever it went" (Gilbert Taylor). A "must-have" title for Ken Burns, students of modern history, and photography collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the Dedication Page by Ken Burns. He signed his name directly under his moving dedication. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a bookplate, as many copies from the publisher are. This title is a contemporary classic. This is one of very few signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A very scarce signed copy thus. 394 plates, 21 maps. One of the greatest living American writer/filmmakers. A flawless copy. ISBN 0307262839.
