Editorial Reviews

Naval History
"Jones's telling of the bureaucratic maze Hatch navigated to gather equipment, supplies, and work space is as fascinating as his combat descriptions."
Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star
"Norman Hatch is a living legend."
Richmond Times-Dispatch
"Jones brings Hatch's story -- and that of the Greatest Generation -- to life in War Shots."
Marine Corps Gazette
"Jones's writing style is exceptionally clear, informative, and well researched. War Shots is a rewarding read."
Leatherneck
"Jones is sensitive to how Marines think and understands their esprit de corps and the full meaning of the Marine Corps motto: Semper Fidelis."
Living History
"War Shots may well emerge as one of the most definitive histories of military photography at war and the men behind the cameras who risked their lives to make sure the American public knew what was going on."
