“Like looking down, past one’s toes, over the precipice and into the abyss, Zvi Sesling’s new book, War Zones, rivets its readers’ attention with Spar- tan purpose and imagistic clarity. His notions of war and its insidious causes and calamitous effects strip away the patent falseness of martial glory and highlight instead the inglorious detritus and detail of sundered limbs and damaged psyches. Warmongers should avoid this book.”— Dennis Daly, author of Pantoums
