What are the influences on war correspondents as they report on events in war-torn countries? Mark Pedelty explores the lives, work and culture of the international press corps, examining the institutions, practices, myths, and rituals that shape the work of journalists everywhere. He looks at the context in which journalists construct their reports. By looking at how new stories are actually produced, the author highlights the elusiveness of the goal of "objective" journalism and illustrates how the biases of war correspondents are constrained by the powers of government and how these biases are translated into actual journalistic practices.

Robert G. Moeller powerfully conveys the complicated story of how West Germans recast the recent past after the Second World War. He rejects earlier characterizations of a postwar West Germany dominated by attitudes of "forgetting" or silence about the Nazi past. He instead demonstrates the "selective remembering" that took place among West Germans during the postwar years: in particular, they remembered crimes committed against Germans, crimes that—according to some contemporary accounts—were comparable to the crimes of Germans against Jews. Moeller draws on a wide range of U.S. and German government documents, political debates, film archives, letters, oral histories, and newspaper accounts.

When it comes to sheer savagery endured by the American fighting man, few combat theaters could match the Pacific in WorldWar II: the sodden malarial and Japanese infested jungles of New Guinea and Guadalcanal, the kamikaze pilots for whom death was no deterrent, and the blood-soaked beaches taken by island-hopping Marines. Here, in their own words, are the compelling stories of American soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, as told to decorated combat veteran Lt. Colonel Oliver North.

How does the American public formulate its opinions about U.S. foreign policy and military engagement abroad? War Stories argues that the media systematically distort the information the public vitally needs to determine whether to support such initiatives, for reasons having more to do with journalists' professional interests than the merits of the policies, and that this has significant consequences for national security. Matthew Baum and Tim Groeling develop a "strategic bias" theory that explains the foreign-policy communication process as a three-way interaction among the press, political elites, and the public, each of which has distinct interests, biases, and incentives. Do media representations affect public support for the president and faithfully reflect events in times of diplomatic crisis and war? How do new media--especially Internet news and more partisan outlets--shape public opinion, and how will they alter future conflicts? In answering such questions, Baum and Groeling take an in-depth look at media coverage, elite rhetoric, and public opinion during the Iraq war and other U.S. conflicts abroad. They trace how traditional and new media select stories, how elites frame and sometimes even distort events, and how these dynamics shape public opinion over the course of a conflict. Most of us learn virtually everything we know about foreign policy from media reporting of elite opinions. In War Stories, Baum and Groeling reveal precisely what this means for the future of American foreign policy.

Great Canadian War Stories shows how the experience of Canada at war captured the imagination of fiction writers across the country. With selections from Timothy Findley, Joy Kogawa, Louis Caron, Thomas H. Raddall, Earle Birney, Roch Carrier and others, this audiobook chronicles the scope of Canadian war efforts in the first half of the twentieth century. From the trenches of the Western Front to the plains of the Spanish Civil War, from the skies of North Africa to the jungles of Borneo, Canadian writers present the face of war in its many guises. There are women and children who have lost their homes, and men who have lost their dreams and lives. There are strangers brought together by accident and bound in loyalty. There are adventurers and deserters, volunteers and victims, all revealed with an unmistakable authenticity of voice.

"These are not the stories of sweeping military strategies or bold tactical moves by generals and admirals. Instead, we hear mainly from those on the lower rungs of the military ladder, from ordinary seamen on vessels that encountered Japanese warships and planes and sometimes came out second-best, from rank-and-file Marines who in amtracs churning toward bullet-swept tropical beaches saw buddies killed right next to them, and from startled eyewitnesses to the war's sudden beginning on December 7, 1941.".
