Journalism That Helped Shape Our Understanding of the Dangerous New World America Was Destined to Lead

From a Wall Street Journal books column by Edward Kosner headlined “Dispatches From the Front”:

Today the war news is available around the clock on TV screens, in print, and on the internet. Back then the best source of news was an intrepid band of young American newspaper correspondents whose exclusive dispatches brought home word of the coming cataclysm.
