The War Correspondent

Friday, July 12, 2002

Phillip Knightley’s new book The First Casualty: The War Correspondent as Hero and Myth-Maker from the Crimea to Kosovo runs through 150 years of journalists in war zones. To Knightley, truth is often just as much a casualty as a slain soldier is during wartime. Brooke talks with him about the lives and tales of war correspondents.
