Glass Warriors is the new, text-only paperback edition of The Times War, and has been fully revised and updated to include in-depth biographies of the war journalists and photographers in the book as well as chronologies of all the major wars. On 5 October 1853, as the Ottoman Empire declared war on Russia , thereby setting off the Crimean War, a new age in warfare began. This was the first war reported on by a civilian war correspondent, William Howard Russell of The Times, whose dispatches from the front shocked a nation. It was also the first major conflict to be photographed, beginning the great tradition of war photojournalism which has chronicled all the world's battles and wars ever since. Glass Warriors was first published in hardback as The Times Picture Collection: War to mark the 150th anniversary of the Crimean War, of William Russell's dispatches, and of the first war photography. From the Crimea, through the Franco-Prussian War, the Boer War, the First and Second World War, Korea, Vietnam, the Falklands, Gulf War and the campaign in Afghanistan, all the world's major conflicts are discussed, and are further supported by biographies of each of the journalists and photographers in the stories, as well as a detailed chronologies of all the major wars. The collection is poignant, authoritative, and shocking, chronicling a century and a half when the world has rarely been at peace and when the lenses of photographers have never ceased to capture the ferocity of war. This book is a ground-breaking account of modern warfare.
