This vast photographic walk through the horrors of conflict since World War 2 is extraordinary.

McCullin has personally experienced key moments of the 20th century and seen the worst of what humans can do.

From Vietnam to the Congo, Ireland to the Middle East this is modern history in all its horror and there are some very disturbing images. We were in two minds as to whether it was one to recommend to children. But having seen it three times now, with an assorted variety of children, we think it is a must. This is thanks in no small part to McCullin's humanity which shines through. There is a strong personal voice with many of the photographs being accompanied by quotes from McCullin that puts them in context. Take kids of 10+ for a history lesson that will stay with them for a long time. 

Don McCullin

It's not all about international conflict. Early portraits of Bradford and the East End paint a powerful picture of what Britain was like, not so very long ago. And there is an intimacy to the action photos of Northern Ireland.

Latterly, McCullin's focus has been landscapes of Somerset, Scotland and Northumberland. He has, in his own words, "sentenced himself to peace."

Unmissable.
