Product description

In a time when public perceptions were shaped by the written and spoken word, war correspondents were often as influential as politicians and as celebrated as movie stars. Here, for the first time in paperback, the work of more than 50 remarkable reporters has been drawn from original newspaper and magazine reports, radio transcripts, and wartime books to capture the intensity of World War II's unfolding drama. This volume includes the work of Ernie Pyle, A. J. Liebling, E. B. White, William L. Shirer, John Steinbeck, Margaret Bourke-White, Edward R. Murrow, Martha Gellhorn, James Agee, John Hersey-whose Hiroshima appears in full-and many more. Also included are: A detailed chronology (1933-1945) Maps Profiles of the journalists Helpful notes A glossary of military terms, and Notes on the texts
