I initially bought this book so that I could complete an essay at college. The quality of the pictures is superb -and survived being magnified because of my partial vision. Now I pick the book up just for the pleasure of looking at it.
The text is limited in amount, but dense in information. It gave me an insight into an area of art -War Artists-that I had not realised was so rich in content. Whether you buy the book because you need it for study, or the history, or the artists it is worth every penny.
