Reading this book and looking at its photos, took me to a trip to the fearful 20th century.
I wished i could be a useful person such as those brave photographers and journalist and do something to stop the world from what it is now.

My respects to all those brave photographers and journalist whom sacrificed their lives in order to change the world to a better place.

Probably my favorite photography book, that I still go back to often. It shows the personal sacrifices individuals make to give us a sense of the suffering of others -- really the only way any good is done for the unfortunate around the world.
