Two Classic Accounts of the First World War by an American Correspondent-At the Front with Three Armies & France Bears

by Granville Fortescue
Publication Date: 14/07/2013
An American journalist's view of the Great War For the first thirty-three months of the Great War the United States of America was a neutral nation. This enabled her newspaper correspondents and other observers comparatively free access to the theatre of war in Europe, to witness and report to the American nation the progress of what was then the greatest conflict the world had ever seen. Journalist Granville Fortescue was a member of this elite cadre of war-zone reporters. This unique Leonaur volume, which brings together two of Fortescue's books on the Great War, will be of particular interest not only to those who are fascinated by the war as seen by an English language writer with access to 'enemy' held locations-something almost impossible for other English language speakers-but also to students of journalism who respect the work of the 'warcos' of all generations. Fortescue reports on all aspects of the conflict, both from behind and on the battle-line. He reports on Belgium under fire, the battles of Dinant and Mons, German perspectives on the war and home front, the bombardment of Rheims, the battle at Verdun, the war in the air and the coming of the tanks as well as many other interesting aspects of the First World War in Europe.
