A group of legendary journalists reported America’s war against Nazi Germany, including the broadcasting pioneers Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite, the unpretentious reporter Ernie Pyle, and the dashing photographers Robert Capa and Margaret Bourke-White. The introduction shows why these characters, along with a relatively small number of other journalists from big news organizations, need to be reassessed. It stresses the need to explore not just the dashing exploits of the correspondents who reported from the front, but also those who remained stuck at Allied headquarters where the daily communiqué often provided the first news of big battles. And it explores the circumstances under which these journalists effectively joined the military team.
