The Great War Diaries
Breathtaking Colour Photographs from a World Torn Apart 
Gunnar & Florian Dedio
This book features a previously unpublished collection of photographs taken by a German entrepreneur, August Furmann, who developed a unique photographic technique using glass positives that were coloured in by porcelain painters. The results are truly remarkable and are accompanied by many striking images from around Europe, giving a genuine insight into a lost world, of soldiers in plumed helmets and coloured uniforms, of barefoot children and nursing nuns. 
Arranged both thematically and chronologically, the book looks at the lives of soldiers and civilians, as well as taking in the technology the conflict spawned and the damage it could do. The pictures are complemented by extracts from contemporary diaries of politicians and poets, ambassadors and aviators, sailors and schoolgirls. The overall is result is genuinely engaging and moving. BBC Books   320pp    Hb.
