Book Description 
  
War reveals the true story of what our country has faced since that fateful Tuesday in 2001. Featuring 223 photographs, insightful vignettes and three thought-provoking major essays, War is a powerful collaborative effort from VII, a cutting-edge photo agency cooperatively owned by nine elite photojournalists. The three full-length essays, written by eminent journalists Peter Maass, Remy Ourdan and David Rieff, discuss the three major crises of the twenty-first century from a social, political and militaristic standpoint and further illuminate the powerful photographic images in War. The photographers of VII-Christopher Anderson, Alexandra Boulat, Lauren Greenfield, Ron Haviv, Gary Knight, Antonin Kratochvil, Christopher Morris, James Nachtwey and John Stanmeyer-are used to witnessing, up close and in person, events of international turmoil. That is the duty of a photojournalist-to bear witness and to document history-and few would dispute that these photojournalists are the world's very best.  
  
In addition to documenting the experience of 9/11, War takes an incisive look at the images from Afghanistan and the hunt for Osama bin Laden, as well as the airstrikes and US occupation of Iraq. In War, the photographers of VII have created a shockingly intimate portrait of US foreign policy and the most critical moments of American history in the beginning of the twenty-first century. What you see here will stun you.  
  
War has received the Picture of the Year Best Photography Book, the AIGA 50 Books/50 Covers Selected Book, the Photo District News Best Book Selection and the Independent Publisher Awards Best Current Events.
