“Steve Casey’s The War Beat is a wonderful chronicle of an extraordinary band of correspondents who covered the defeat of the Third Reich. Based on impeccable research, and written with flair and humanity, this utterly absorbing study chronicles the journalists who put themselves in harm’s way to record the titanic struggle to preserve freedom.”—Alex Kershaw, author of Avenue of Spies: A True Story of Terror, Espionage, and One American Family's Heroic Resistance in Nazi-Occupied Paris
“Engagingly written and full of illuminating vignettes, War Beat, Europe tells the story of the brave and intrepid correspondents who reported on the European front during the Second World War. Though subject to military censorship, these courageous journalists never lost sight of their fundamental obligation to keep the public informed.”—Richard R. John, Columbia Journalism School
"This very impressive volume is a superbly researched and beautifully written study of US media coverage of the European theater during World War II. Its comprehensive and incisive analysis will lead to reconsideration of many standard beliefs regarding the relationship among the media, the armed forces, and the government during this conflict, as well as the individuals whose reporting and visuals helped shape the public image of the war.”—Mark A. Stoler, editor of the George C. Marshall Papers
“The famed American war correspondents who covered the European theater in World War II presented to their readers back home a conflict that was tough, but triumphant. The War Beat, Europe shows us the competition, hardship, criticism, distrust, and patriotism that characterized the fractious cooperation between the US military and the media.”—Susan Brewer, author of Why America Fights: Patriotism and War Propaganda from the Philippines to Iraq
