Ernst Friedrich- War Against War!

Ernst Friedrich- War Against War!

Publisher's Notes: First published in 1924, War Against War! was one of the first photographic collections of explicit battlefield material released for mass consumption. Attempts to censor the book by the Weimar Government and later by the Nazis proved unsuccessful. Ernst Friedrich collected hundreds of photographs of the atrocities and after affects of WWI, juxtaposing them against the propaganda and military rhetoric which he felt romanticized the reality of war.
