By the foreign correspondents of Time, Life and Fortune, this is a selection of their dispatches which constitutes coverage of the war on all fronts, and which represents some of the finest reporting that has been done...i.e. Cecil Brown, John Hersey, Jack Belden, Charles Wertenbaker, Walter Graebner, Robert Sherrod.--The course of the war from Bardia to the Burma Road, Manila, Singapore, Bataan, Guadalcanal, North Africa, Sicily, Attu, China, Russia -- on to the invasion. The war aboard a carrier, a destroyer a T boat, a bomber...personalities, such as Chennault, Seagrave, Mark Clark, Churchill, Montgomery, Wingate...The home fronts in England, Germany, France, Russia...A composite world view of the war, grim, graphic, with occasional lighter inclusions -- all high in drama and vitality.
