Description

Jewel of the Mall: World War II Memorial is a full-color photographic book on the National World War II Memorial with an introduction by Senator Robert Dole and photographs by Stephen R. Brown. The images are exclusive never-to-be duplicated vistas as Brown had access to the site and cranes as the World War II Memorial was built. He also photographed the creation of the 18-foot high 80,000-pound bronze sculptural eagles and related pieces, which adorn the World War II Memorial. The documentation of the “lost wax” process in itself is a unique peak into sculptural history. The book features panoramic scenes of the new face of the Mall; as well as images of the creation and installation of the sculpture and marble ornamentation that is part of this new memorial.

A section entitled “A Living Memorial” focuses on the day-to-day activities 
surrounding the World War II Memorial that make this memorial so vibrant, including Honor Flight’s WWII Veterans. This book also features an Honor Flight video, which documents the veterans’ travel to and from Washington, DC as well as a slide show of veterans being greeted at the Memorial.

Customer Reviews

The Jewel of the Mall

The photographs are gorgeous, and do justice to the WWII Memorial and to the memory of the veterans for whom it was created. If you have made the trip to see it on the Mall then this book will forever memorialize your visit and, if you are planning your visit, it will teach you how to make your experience so much more memorable. Finally, if you know of a WWII veteran who has yet to visit...show him or her this book. Mr Brown's photos were taken, and selected, with great care and professionalism.
