The War Beat, Europe

Oxford University Press

World War II is often remembered as a time when correspondents joined the military to become part of America’s war-winning team. This certainly happened on occasion, partly because seasoned reporters often came to identify with the units that they accompanied, partly because the nature of amphibious operations created an incentive to cooperate, and partly because competition with the British ally sharpened support for American officers. But experience was a double-edged sword. Sometimes, it created veterans who thought they knew better than the military. At other times, it so wearied reporters that they found it difficult to toe the approved line.

Keywords:   war correspondents, World War II, Nazi Germany, Ernie Pyle, Robert Capa, Dwight Eisenhower, Franklin Roosevelt, military-media relations, censorship, casualties
