Very informative and well written enough to constitute as a fair quick-read on the history of one of film's greatest monsters. It scrolls through the timeline thoroughly and chronicles some real world events that gave rise and form to Godzilla- how the monster has both lost and garnered respect over time and has cemented his place as a timeless creation that shaped history. Some of the text mashed a bunch of names together sometimes so I had to flip back and remind myself of who was who- and the author of the magazine seems to have a bias against certain movies and makes that clear in a few areas. It was something I could overlook, but it's a largely educational entertainment publication- not a movie critic's diary or a persuasion. I was bouncing between 4.5 to 5 stars, but ultimately settled on 4.5 due to the tone and diction in some places. That may sound picky, but it can have room for improvement- even if mild.
I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about Godzilla and pick up a few history lessons textured with grit and grim along the way. Surely, there's at least one or two things in the magazine that even the most die hard Godzilla fan isn't entirely familiar with- or they can serve to be reminded of. I even learned several things and I'm a big fan myself!

This is a collection of photographs from Life to Magazine published during the Second World War. Some of the photos are described as to where and when they were taken. In some case the military individuals are identified. As well there are quotes from the newspaper articles written by war correspondents such as Robert Capra, Ernest Hemingway, Ernie Pyle and Edward R. Murrow that accompany and describe some of the photos.

A wonderful browsing vehicle for getting an impression of what serving overseas might have been like.… (more)

A timely reminder of the horror of war. The waste. The stupidity. The careless throwing away of lives. The devastation of land. The killing of animals. Sickening
