New book about war journalism

Co-edited by Yvonne T. McEwen and Fiona A. Fisken, this is the first published work to examine an eclectic mix of correspondents during the two world wars who were prepared often at great personal cost to inform the public about the obscenity of warfare.

'War, Journalism and History: War Correspondents in the Two World Wars'

This volume examines the lives and works of correspondents such as Richard Dimbleby, Vasilii Grossman, Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett, Albert Londres, Vera Britain, and others who, whether through the use of a pen or camera, typewriter or radio, tried to secure the integrity of wartime reporting and accurately record history in the making.
