War Against War! - Paul Mason's book of the year

War Against War! found a spot among The Observer's Books of the Year 2014. 

Paul Mason, Economics Editor at Channel 4 News, recently reviewed it as part of a reflection on war journalism - we are excited that he has now given it a further commendation in this feature.

His comments on War Against War!, printed on Sunday 30th November, read as follows:

'My favourite book of 2014 is the newly reissued facsimile of War Against War! (Spokesman Books) by Ernst Friedrich; first published in 1924, it showed the shocking pictorial truth about the injuries and devastation of the first world war. It was great preparation for reporting on the Gaza conflict...'
