Abstract:

"Thousands of reporters have visited war zones for a few months or weeks. But some have done much more, creating a tradition, a genre, and a distinctive body of work. Now, for the first time, these pivotal figures and those who knew them tell their own stories in a book that covers all of America's major conflicts from World War II to the present. It is filled with harrowing and revealing tales about the experience of covering war.".

"Personal tales intermingle with explorations of such critical issues as censorship, propaganda, press ethics, and the press's relationship with the Pentagon, both before and after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Together, they form a vivid and illuminating account that is essential reading for all who seek to understand the nature of war and how we learn about it."--Book jacket.
