Amazon.com description: Product Description: In photography and poetry, Fragments of Peace in a World at War takes the reader on an emotional journey behind the front lines of World War II in the Middle East, North Africa, and Italy. Jock Cobb registered as a Conscientious Objector during the war and volunteered with the American Field Service Ambulance Corps. A student of famed photographer Laura Gilpin, he converted his ambulance into a field darkroom and returned home with more than a thousand black-and-white negatives that documented his experience on the front lines. After the war, Cobb immersed himself in medical school, family, and his career, while his wartime negatives sat in a box for sixty years. In the past decade, Cobb re-opened the box and the difficult memories that the images evoked. The result is Fragments of Peace in a World at War, a collection of 107 photographs described in poetry and narrative through the voices of Cobb and his longtime friend and fellow ambulance driver, Charles Edwards. A unique perspective on World War II, Cobb's book is a priceless contribution to the fields of photography, history, and peace studies that will benefit all those who seek to understand the enduring consequences of war. Fragments of Peace in a World at War also pays homage to the all-but-forgotten World War II ambulance drivers who risked their lives for their fallen comrades and to all of the conscientious objectors from that era who will soon fade into the twilight.
