Information
"The first casualty when war comes, is truth." - Senator Hiram Johnson, 1917

A completely updated edition of this classic history of the war correspondent, with an introduction by John Pilger.

Truth has often been a casualty of war. From 'The Times' struggling to tell the truth about the appalling conditions of the British forces in the Crimean War, to the correspondents who lifted the lid on the reality of the Vietnam War and the corralling of journalists by state news managers during the Falklands, the Gulf War and Kosovo.

This is a fascinating story of heroism and collusion, censorship and suppression, myth-making and propaganda. Now brought up to date with new material on war in Afghanistan and Iraq.
