Summary
"This book draws on literature, painting, and a never-before-seen cache of photographs to explore the representation of catastrophe and the targeting of civilians in war. Focusing on images of Nazi Germany's bombed-out cities, the author connects the fraught aesthetics of ruins with the problem of how to acknowledge German suffering."--Provided by publisher
