Notes:
"[The book] is composed of wide-format, black-and-white photos of forty bedrooms left behind by soldiers killed in Iraq or Afghanistan. Left intact by the families of the deceased, these bedrooms are filled with milestones of lives cut cruelly short. These forty photos---a number corresponding to the size of a platoon---convey the anguish of war more eloquently than any battlefield photograph and serve as a lasting memorial to the troops who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan"--Publisher's blurb.
