Product Description


"One of the most beautiful books of the year." (Richard Dorment Telegraph)

"Showcases Beaton’s grittier side as he captured countries and cultures affected by the Second World War." (Esquire)

"This plush Coffee table book contains the old rogue’s finest work…an eye-catching record of Britain at war." (Shortlist)

"Touching and often harrowing." (Huffington Post)

"Beaton had a supreme understanding of life as theatre, and set out to document the conflict with the same dramatic intensity he had used to capture society girls in the late 1920s and 1930s." (World of Interiors)
