War Correspondent Summary

War Correspondent: Reporting Under Fire Since 1850 by Jean Hood

Rageh Omaar's composed reporting of the bombardment of Baghdad; Martha Gellhorn's evocative portrait of Barcelona under siege; Richard Dimbleby's horrifying radio broadcast from Belsen; Robert Capa's blurred images of the chaos on Omaha Beach: for 150 years war correspondents have shaped our understanding of the war zone. Through printed word, photograph, radio and satellite link-up, they have exposed the horrors of war and revealed the endurance of the human spirit under fire. "War Correspondent" not only brings together details of the most famous dispatches from the front and iconic examples of photojournalism that have passed into our collective consciousness, it is also about the war correspondents themselves - their escapades and ruses to outwit the censor; their ability to rough it in the most extreme conditions; their determination to place themselves in harm's way in the pursuit of the facts; and their frustrations with military and government restrictions, as well as the editors. Fully illustrated to showcase the best examples of front-line reporting from the Civil War to the War on Terror, "War Correspondent "offers fascinating insight into the psyche of those that cover the cataclysmic events of our time.
