The First Casualty - From the Crimea to Vietnam Summary


The First Casualty - From the Crimea to Vietnam: War Correspondent as Hero, Propagandist and Mythmaker by Phillip Knightley

By the award-winner of "News International" Journalist of the Year, Phillip Knightley has written about being a special correspondent during wartime. He questions to what extent correspondents shape myths and suppress facts? And how their role has changed over the years. From the Crimea to Afghanistan, by the way of the Spanish Civil War, Korea and Vietnam, Phillip Knightley examines the development of the war reporter's role. He suggests that our attitudes to history are moulded by what we read in wartime and that what we read too often bears little resemblance to reality.
