Product description

Review

Although it is based on a real story, the book has the force of a timeless fable, thanks to minimal, poetic text. Shallow depth-of-field photography by Ober's wife, Jules, and digital enhancements by Felicity Coonan make the images especially lifelike. These striking miniatures have the power to put us in the minds of the true 'little soldiers, ' the common men who fought in a long-ago war and yet whose story feels so present here.
--The New York Times Book Review

...the powerfully atmospheric art compels attention. Riveting...likely to stir strong responses in reflective readers.
--Kirkus Reviews

Based on a true story, The Good Son is an emotionally rich account of friendship, loyalties tested, the horrors of war, and the price paid for choices made. Through spare narrative and intensely detailed photos of the miniature scenes created that make this book come alive, this selection is stirring on multiple levels.
--Kendal A. Rautzhan's "Books to Borrow...Books to Buy"
