Description - War Stories by Harold Evans
"War Stories: Reporting in the Time of Conflict" tells the stories of war correspondents, from the very first reports from the Crimean War in 1853 to the Second Gulf War. Through the notebooks, photographs, headlines, wires, telegrams, and satellite uplinks, Harold Evans describes the means and the ends, the times through which and when these uniquely dedicated men and woman attempted and succeeded, sometimes at the cost of their own lives, in retelling the most immediate stories of war. Whether with the last report of Mark Kellogg the day before he died with Custer at Little Big Horn in 1876, the last photograph of Robert Capa taken just before he was killed by a mine in Vietnam in 1954, John Reed's description of riding with Pancho Villa, or Marguerite Higgins's report from a place called Dachau, Harold Evans brings his reader in close to these legendary writers, photographers, radio and television reporters and their lives reporting wars under fire.
