Summary From the North African desert to the bloody stalemate in Italy, from the D-Day beaches to the freezing retreat during the Battle of the Bulge, a group of highly courageous correspondents covered the war against Nazi Germany. Based on a wealth of previously untapped sources this work provides a comprehensive account of what these reporters witnessed, what they were allowed to publish, and how their reports shaped the home front's perception of some of the most pivotal battles in American history
