The book was the result of a chance reportage: the two Modonesi and Leidi had left Italy to go to Prague to get an idea of how things were going in the East, unaware that they would find themselves in the middle of an invasion. Their photos went around the world and had a great effect and were then included in this publication. That was the paradox, it was surreal. It happened that the police would stop you and interrogate you for three hours just for having taken an "unseemly" photo, perhaps of a soldier in the centre, on Wenceslas Square. But then you could walk around the countryside, the agricultural cooperatives, and the peasants and workers would tell you that they were all for Dubček, for the government of the Spring: the Czechoslovak revolution was the last revolution.
