Civil war in pictures

by nikterry on Oct 28, 2008

This book is full of pictures. I am a little disapointed with the photographer Brady as to having always or mostly "planted" his subjects rather than taken them as he found them. It presents, I think, a false vision of the war. This can not be blamed on the collector of photographs otherwise said as "editor". While I found that the brief descriptions of the photograhs sometimes went against other written data and with less, if anything, to back up the information that this was not intended as such a book. If war could ever be seen as for "pleaure viewing", this book would be it. Nice front cover and many nice pictures within of groups of people not commonly found together.
