"Recommended. The explanations of the experts and witnesses convincingly demonstrate that the cost of war extends far beyond the actual fighting. Preparation for war and the aftermath of war add to the destruction of 'natural security'."
- Educational Media Review Online
"The extensive research and skillful presentation by sociologists Alice and Lincoln Day make the film a surprisingly moving experience. Interviews of scientists, war veterans and others are carefully interspersed with footage that makes vivid the long-term damage to the planet that has resulted from
military conflicts and activities."
- Science Magazine
"A powerful and haunting account of war's silent casualty--the environment. Catalogs the array of damage from bombs, chemicals, guns and unexploded ordnance."
- The Chronicle of Higher Education Review
"The documentary weaves together eyewitness accounts, interviews, archival footage, and news video from wars past and present. The images portray a story rarely considered in the heat of battle: how war pollutes the air, water and land; destroys biodiversity and drains natural resources."
