From San Juan Hill to the Persian Gulf, the rise of mass media throughout the 20th century has redefined how Americans perceive war. Stephen Ives' provocative documentary examines the history of the American media during wartime, with special attention to the increased role of journalists as they embed themselves into battle to offer eyewitness frontline reports. Features profiles of broadcast legends Edward R. Murrow and Ernie Pyle as well as interviews with Walter Cronkite, Christiane Amanpour, Peter Arnett, and many others.
