At the start of hostilities in World War I, when the United States was still neutral, American newsreel companies and newspapers sent a new kind of journalist, the film correspondent, to Europe to record the Great War. These pioneering cameramen, accustomed to carrying the Kodaks and Graflexes of still photography, had to lug cumbersome equipment into the trenches. Facing dangerous conditions on the front, they also risked summary execution as supposed spies while navigating military red tape, censorship, and the business interests of the film and newspaper companies they represented. Based on extensive research in European and American archives, American Cinematographers in the Great War, 1914–1918 follows the adventures of these cameramen as they managed to document and film the atrocities around them in spite of enormous difficulties.

About the Author:

James W. Castellan is an independent scholar who has done extensive research on cinematographer Wilbur H. Durborough and journalist Oswald Schuette.

Ron van Dopperen studied history at the University of Utrecht, Holland, where he wrote his academic thesis on American World War I documentary films.

Cooper C. Graham is a retired film curator for the Library of Congress and author of Leni Riefenstahl and "Olympia."

Review:

American cinematographers in the Great War . . . is the first book to explore the work and working conditions of American cinematographers active on the different fronts of the First World War. It is a pioneering study which has already attracted a good deal of attention in the academic and archive world. (Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television)
