The Illustrated War Reports, Ypres, Contemporary Combat Images From The Great War



This book contains a very fine selection of images from the battles around Ypres. This type of book makes the term ‘author’ tricky. Carruthers has used text sparingly and relied on the power of the images to tell the story. Whether that makes him an author or an editor is arguable, but the result of his labours is a moving tribute to those who fought and provided so many unique glimpses of what it was like to be there. It also provides a tribute to those who brought the story to the public in a unique way.Most Recommended.
