The Great War in 3D: A Book Plus a Stereoscopic Viewer, Plus 35 3D Photos of Men in Battle, 1914- 1918.

Black Dog & Leventhal. Nov. 2013. 176p. photos. ISBN 9781579129538. $29.95. HISTA magnetically closing box houses a folding viewer and reproductions of stereoscopic views of World War I, both to a smaller scale than the originals would have been. They work just fine, magically producing 3-0 views that document just about every angle of the war (they cover more than .. men In battle," and they extend beyond 1918), from its manpower to its equipment, trench works, battleships, hospitals, and home front parades before and after. The images are from the Allied perspective: those few of Germans show them either dead or as prisoners. The stereo photos and viewer are in flocked plastic housing that will not stand up to much handling, but the accompanying softcover book, The Album of the Great War, 1914- 1918, by JeanPierre Verney, is underneath this housing. It presents a chronological "news" format, but in the past tense like conventional history writing, as the war proceeds, and includes related context. In between the "news" are illustrated features on particular aspects of the war, such as the Americans joining in 1917.VERDICT It's unclear if libraries will be able to keep control of this-it may be better as a gift-but it will be sure to foster interest in the war among general readers. Recommended. - Margaret Heilbrun (MH), Library Journal
