Library JournalThis is a weird one. Yale School of Design classmates Levinthal and Trudeau (yeah, the Doonesbury guy) recreated the German army’s invasion of Russia using toy solders and model tanks, planes, jeeps, etc. They photographed their subjects close-up using medium-format and 35mm cameras with lenses wide open to attain the narrowest depth-of-field possible so little actually was in focus. The grainy, monochrome prints were sepia toned to give them an antique appearance. The 1977 book garnered some attention in photography circles but otherwise went unnoticed. Each chapter includes introductory text by Trudeau and quotes from German and Russian officers. This edition reprints the original in a large-format volume with numerous full-spread photographs.
