I did not care very much for the text of the book, but the illustrations were wonderful, playing a lot with texture and symbolism. There was one illustration in particular that was fantastic. It was a surreal depiction of war as a billowing cloud of brown sludge and smoke; it rose up in a wave made of soldiers, cresting in the shape of a skull. This is a very cool illustration, and is (by its own merit) reason enough to take a peek at this book.
