THE FIRST CASUALTY: The War Correspondent as Hero, Propagandist and Myth Maker – From the Crimea to Vietnam

R274.00

“The first casualty when war comes, is truth,” said American Senator Hiram Johnson in 1917. In his gripping, now-classic history of war journalism, Phillip Knightley shows just how right Johnson was. From William Howard Russell, who described the appalling conditions of the Crimean War in the Times of London, to the ranks of reporters, photographers, and cameramen who captured the realities of war in Vietnam, The First Casualty tells a fascinating story of heroism and collusion, censorship and suppression.
