Synopsis

Defiant Gardens Making Gardens in Wartime by Kenneth I. Helphand

Defiant Gardens examines gardens of war in the twentieth century, including gardens built behind the trenches in World War I, in the ghettos during World War II, and in Japanese-American internment camps in the US, as well as gardens created by soldiers at their bases and encampments during the Gulf War, Vietnam, Korea and the Second World Wars.

Reviews

An incredible and deply moving history of the ways in which soldiers and civilians, often in the most grievous and immiserated circumstances, have created little pockets of horticultural hope throughout the twentieth century... The photographs alone are extraordinary, but the chronicles of imaginative resistance are almost beyond belief. (New Statesman)
