Book Review – Reporting From The Front, War Reporters During The Great War



By the start of WWI, war reporters were present in some numbers. Stills photographers were almost as numerous, and the first war film cameramen were operating at the front. It was often a very dangerous job and casualties mounted. It provided a very broad coverage of action on land, sea and in the air. It began to change some of the practices of war and it produced huge amounts of material, some of which is only now being examined, 100 years after the events.

The descriptive and engaging text is strongly supported by a very interesting photo plate section. A very good book on a little-told story.
