Default Illustrating Armageddon

My wonderful wife bought this book as Christmas present. The illustration on the front cover of the book is a wonderful photograph.........except for the fact that it is not a photograph. Fortunio Matania was an artist with a photographic memory and many of his illustrations were pencil drawings. When you first glance at the page you think initially that you are looking at a photograph.....except you are looking at a drawing! I promise you, this is a stunning book and one which will appeal to anyone with an interest in the First World War. The book ‘weighs a ton’ but every page brings a ‘wow’ to the lips. Do yourself a favour and buy it!
