i must admit that i was sceptical about this book - the pairing of Simon Norfolk's 2010 images with those of Burke from the 1800s. I needn't have worried - rather than re-creating his Victorian forebears' images, tNorfolk's images compliment and echo those of Burke. It works brilliantly and I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

There are some fabulous photographs in this book; although they are based around the presence of British troops in Afghanistan, many of them have a quite special quality which transcends the war. Amazon was able to supply it much cheaper than buying it from a bookshop.
