Product Details

Praise

Although it is based on a real story, the book has the force of a timeless fable, thanks to minimal, poetic text. Shallow depth-of-field photography by Ober’s wife, Jules, and digital enhancements by Felicity Coonan make the images especially lifelike. These striking miniatures have the power to put us in the minds of the true ‘little soldiers,’ the common men who fought in a long-ago war and yet whose story feels so present here.
—The New York Times Book Review

…the powerfully atmospheric art compels attention. Riveting…likely to stir strong responses in reflective readers.
—Kirkus Reviews
