For 150 years war correspondents have shaped our understanding of the war zone. Through printed word, photograph, radio and satellite link-up, they have exposed the horrors of war and revealed the endurance of the human spirit under fire.

This book not only brings together details of the most famous dispatches from the front and iconic examples of photojournalism that have passed into our collective consciousness, it is also about the war correspondents themselves. Illustrated with the best examples of war art, black-and-white prints and color reportage of the conflicts of the last century and a half, and with special features on the careers of famous journalists and photographers, this book offers a fascinating insight into the role of the war correspondent.
