Compiled by Michelle Ferrari with Commentary by James Tobin

Thousands of reporters have visited war zones for a few months or weeks. But some have done much more, creating a tradition, a genre, and a distinctive body of work. Now, for the first time, these pivotal figures and those who knew them tell their own stories in a book that covers all of America's major conflicts from World War II to the present. It is filled with harrowing and revealing tales about the experience of covering war.

Available only in Americana 5.
