The First Casualty

by Phillip Knightley, The First Casualty Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The First Casualty books, "The first casualty when war comes, is truth," said American Senator Hiram Johnson in 1917. In his gripping, now-classic history of war journalism, Phillip Knightley shows just how right Johnson was. From William Howard Russell, who described the appalling conditions of the Crimean War in the Times of London, to the ranks of reporters, photographers, and cameramen who captured the realities of war in Vietnam, The First Casualty tells a fascinating story of heroism and collusion, censorship and suppression. Since Vietnam, Knightley reveals, governments have become much more adept at managing the media, as highlighted in chapters on the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and the conflict between NATO and Serbia over Kosovo. And in a new chapter on the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Knightley details even greater degrees of government manipulation and media complicity, as evidenced by the "embedding" of reporters in military units and the uncritical, openly patriotic coverage of these conflicts. "The age of the war correspondent as hero," he concludes, "appears to be over." Fully updated, The First Casualty remains required reading for anyone concerned about freedom of the press, journalistic responsibility, and the nature of modern warfare.

by Charles Todd, A Casualty Of War Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Casualty Of War books, From New York Times bestselling author Charles Todd comes a haunting tale that explores the impact of World War I on all who witnessed it—officers, soldiers, doctors, and battlefield nurses like Bess Crawford. Though the Great War is nearing its end, the fighting rages on. While waiting for transport back to her post, Bess Crawford meets Captain Alan Travis from the island of Barbados. Later, when he’s brought into her forward aid station disoriented from a head wound, Bess is alarmed that he believes his distant English cousin, Lieutenant James Travis, shot him. Then the Captain is brought back to the aid station with a more severe wound, once more angrily denouncing the Lieutenant as a killer. But when it appears that James Travis couldn’t have shot him, the Captain’s sanity is questioned. Still, Bess wonders how such an experienced officer could be so wrong. On leave in England, Bess finds the Captain strapped to his bed in a clinic for brain injuries. Horrified by his condition, Bess and Sergeant Major Simon Brandon travel to James Travis’s home in Suffolk, to learn more about the baffling relationship between these two cousins. Her search will lead this smart, capable, and compassionate young woman into unexpected danger, and bring her face to face with the visible and invisible wounds of war that not even the much-longed for peace can heal.

A Casualty Of War The War On Drugs The War Within

by Franklin Walters, A Casualty Of War The War On Drugs The War Within Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download A Casualty Of War The War On Drugs The War Within books, There is still today much discussion about whether some drugs that the government deems as dangerous should be decriminalized. The U. S. Government imposes fines and imprisonment for the possession and use of marijuana, while the most harmful drug, alcohol and its known dangers, remains legal and extremely abused. The U. S. Government views itself as the world's protectors, yet it imprisons many of its citizens for exercising the right to choose their own lifestyle. If it is a lifestyle that does not bring harm to others, why should the government interfere? This book, A casualty of war, the war on drugs, the war within, is a about a black soldier whose life and the lives of his family were changed forever because of such unjust and inhumane laws. William Francis was introduced to drugs during his first tour in Germany. For much of his military life he used marijuana to cope with racism and other forms of discrimination. The book details the external problems he faced in the military and civilian life and the internal war raging within him because of his religious beliefs. It tells how his wife views his use of marijuana; in that it poses a risk to the family's welfare and his military career if his use is discovered. She and others know that he is more than functional under the influence of marijuana. Determine for yourself whether or not what finally happened to William is justified. And then, if you can without bias and self-righteousness, determine for yourself if the laws are protecting people or unjustly depriving them of their right to real freedom.

The First Casualty Of War

by William Howard Kazarian, The First Casualty Of War Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The First Casualty Of War books, This novella is a compilation of stories based upon historical events that occurred prior to and following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Territorial Hawaii. The situations, issues, themes, and outcomes are partly derived from the experiences of the people who lived through those times and whose lives were either directly or indirectly affected by social, military, political, and economic fortunes. The main focus examines issues of discrimination, fate, determination, community versus the individual, charity versus greed, and the sheer will of ordinary people to transform a hostile environment into a fertile land of productivity, inclusion, and opportunity. It is hoped that this work might possibly provide a fresh window of insight into developing a more constructive future.
