This book takes an evocative look at the world of the war correspondent - from the Crimean War in 1853 to the Second Gulf War in 2003. More than just journalists, war correspondents are the eyes of history. Unflinching in their quest for the story, these are the men and women who risk their own lives to tell the world the truth behind the world's conflicts. Among their number are some of the greatest literary minds and most influential figures of the last two centuries - including Ernest Hemingway, Alexander Dumas, Winston Churchill, Rudyard Kipling, George Orwell, and Jack London. Through the notebooks, photographs, and headlines, "War Stories" brings together an evocative collection of stories - from the very first reports from the Crimean War in 1853 to the Second Gulf War in 2003 - of how, sometimes at the cost of their own lives, these brave men and women told the world about the true cost of war.
