About the book, from the publisher:Among the advance praise for Guernica and Total War:
"This is potent stuff. Guernica symbolizes the ethical dilemma of modern warfare. Patterson is a masterful storyteller, who seeks to convey the experience of 'the sky falling on one's head.' He offers profound historical reflections as well as a thoughtful meditation on our own times."
--Joanna Bourke, Professor of History, Birkbeck College
