find visual support for their dedication What does "The latter find visual support for their dedication in military magazines and web pages" mean? Does it mean "The latter, who are dedicated to military art and stuff, probably also love military magazines and web pages"? Context: Such art is not so distant from the more politically motivated expressions that fill this book. Much as Goya’s viewers find confirmation of their own views about war, so too do those who participate in re-enactments or paint armies of toy soldiers. The latter find visual support for their dedication – to remembering history factually and accurately, stripped perhaps of any judgment call – in military magazines and web pages.

It means something like.. The latter (people who participate in re-enactments or paint armies of toy soldiers) use pictures in military magazines and web pages as reference points/source material (they find visual support).. so that the re-enactments are realistic and a reflection of what really happened, and the details of the painted toy soldiers are accurate (e.g. their uniforms are painted to resemble the actual uniforms in the magazines etc.) They are dedicated to remembering and portraying wars accurately, and as they really were. Not how we think they might have been.
