Based on a close reading of many troop newspapers, this volume is the first historical survey of the U.S. military press from the Revolutionary War to the present. Drawing on the rich detail in the troop newspapers, it also provides a social record of the attitudes, aspirations, and life of those engaged in war, and considers the increasingly controversial issue of freedom of the press in war time. This volume should become a standard in journalism history.

Editorial Reviews

?This book's immediate contribution is its impressive documentation of thousands of military newspapers and publications produced since the Revolutionary War. The book's strength is its review of the military press before 1950. The text is well annotated and contains 22 pages of footnotes. Recommended for undergraduates and general readers.?-Choice
