Whenever man has gone to war in modern times there has been no shortage of men and women to write about his exploits. They were known as war correspondents, a type of journalists whom General Wolseley called 'the newly invented curse to armies'. This study of the war correspondent's view of war traces the story from Russell's pioneering work for The Times in the Crimea to the assorted press, radio and television journalists who accompanied the British task force to the Falklands in 1982. In particular, it investigates the lives and careers of six of the greatest war correspondents of all time: G W Steevens, who accompanied Kitchener to the Sudan and who introduced the 'colour story' to war reporting; Edgar Wallace, the future thriller writer who scooped the rest of the world at the end of the Boer War; Charles á Court Repington, the military correspondent who exposed the scandal of the shortage of shells in 1915; Claud Cockburn, a communist who adopted a self-confessed partisan approach during the Spanish Civil War; Chester Wilmot, perhaps the greatest of radio war correspondents who brought the Second World War into the living-rooms of Britain; James Cameron, a pacifist who uncovered stories of atrocities in Korea and who demanded to be published and damned. There also includes a discussion on the problems of using television to cover modern war.

WAR REPORT, the landmark BBC radio program, first broadcast after the nine o-clock news on D-Day, 6 June 1944 and provided an almost-daily chronicle to millions of listeneres of the final year of World War II. A team BBC reporters, including Chester Wilmot, Frank Gillard, Wynford Vaughan Thomas and Richard Dimbleby, trained and were embedded with British troops, a first in war reporting: they landed side by side with soldiers, in gliders, by parachute, in assault-craft, talking into portable recording machines to ‘tell it as it was’. For eleven months these reporters were in the vanguard, filing over 1,500 dispatches covering the desperate exchanges on the D-Day beaches, the battle for Caen, the advance through Normandy, the liberation of Paris and, finally, the German surrender in 1945. 70 years after the invasion of Normandy, the dispatches of War Report collected here provide a unique and visceral account of Allied efforts to liberate Europe and end the war. It is history direct from the front line, filled with all the horror and excitement of eleven months that changed the world.

Volume 1 of the OSS War Report outlines the growth of COI/ OSS in Washington and the development of the functions of its various branches. In volume 2, OSS activity in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East is related, not by branches, but according to each successive target area. "This War Report presents a well-rounded study of the first comprehensive organization for intelligence and unorthodox warfare in the history of the United States. I only regret that limitations of time prevented a fuller recording of OSS operations and experience. The importance of OSS lies not only in its role in hastening military victory, but also in the development of the concept of unorthodox warfare which alone constitutes a major contribution. Of even farther reaching importance are the lessons learned and the contributions made to the future of American defense and foreign policy. The experience of OSS showed above all how essential it is for winning the war and keeping the peace to base national policy upon accurate and complete intelligence. Unorthodox warfare is now recognized as a vital part of our defense system." - William J. Donovan, Director, Office of Strategic Services.
