Summary "Sacrifice in war is not just about names on the roll of honour. When you look at these men, you realise that sacrifice is literally inscribed on their tissue and skin," says Sandy Callister. For the past six years, University of Auckland PhD graduate Sandy Callister has been face to face with some of the most horrific depictions of physical sacrifice during World War I. Her 2006 doctoral thesis is published by Auckland University Press and entitled The Face of War: New Zealand—ęs Great War Photography. In it, Sandy discusses how photography was used to capture and narrate, memorialise and observe, romanticise and bear witness to the experiences of New Zealanders at home and overseas."--Publisher's website.
