Witnesses to War: The History of Australian Conflict Reporting

Author(s): and Trembath Anderson

Military History

'Witnesses to War' is a landmark history of Australian war journalism that covers the major conflicts of the 20th Century: World War I, World War II, Vietnam and Bosnia through to recent and ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 'Witnesses to War' looks at how journalists reported the horrors and politics of war, the rise of the celebrity journalist, issues of censorship and the ethics of 'embedding'. Interviews with leading war correspondents including John Pilger, Paul McGeough and Chris Masters reveal the challenges of covering wars and how they personally deal with the violence they witness. Many describe becoming desensitised to the horror. Many other journalists are permanently marked by it.
