Memory of the camps by Trevor Howard( visu )
7 editions published between 1989 and 2005 in English and held by 1,007 libraries worldwide
Documentary footage filmed by Allied Forces army cameramen when they entered the Nazi death camps in 1945 and only recently discovered in the archives of the Imperial War Museum in London. Scenes from Bergen-Belson, Dachau, Buchenwald, and other camps. A group of directors among whom was Alfred Hichcock developed a script to present these horrors and be sure that people remember. Work began in the summer of 1945 on the documentary, but the film was left unfinished. FRONTLINE found it stored in a vault of London's Imperial War Museum and, in 1985, broadcast it for the first time using the title the Imperial War Museum gave it, "Memory of the Camps."

Anthem for doomed youth : twelve soldier poets of the First World War by Jon Stallworthy( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 422 libraries worldwide
Leading poet and former professor of English Literature, Jon Stallworthy, tells the story of the lives and work of twelve major poets of the First World War and provides selections of their best work. The First World War began with flag-waving, parades and poets inspired by abstract ideals. In part this reflected the national mood, but it revealed an almost universal failure to understand what modern mass warfare would really mean. The story of the 'war poets' is also the story of an awakening to the full horror of what the twentieth century came to know as 'The Great War

Shaped by war by Don McCullin( Book )
3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 382 libraries worldwide
British photojournalist McCullin's best-known images, which are included in this retrospective of his entire career, stem from wars of the 1960s and 1970s in the Congo, Cyprus, Vietnam, and Lebanon. A companion to a contemporary exhibit staged by Britain's Imperial War Museum, the tome contains text that somewhat overlaps with McCullin's autobiography (Unreasonable Behavior, 1992), but there are far more photographs included here. Word and picture initially explain how McCullin began, as a film developer in the Royal Air Force. Returned to civilian life in the late 1950s, he broke into photojournalism with street scenes of London and eventually was hired by the prestigious London Sunday Times, for which he took a picture that has assumed iconic status in Vietnam War imagery, in which a battle-weary U.S. Marine looks through the camera with a thousand-yard stare. McCullin describes the circumstances of its composition, as he does those of most photos reproduced here, typically reflecting on his feelings about covering combat and the risks he incurred
