Recognizing that truth is often the first casualty of war, military historian Ian Garden examines the way both Axis and Allies manipulated news coverage of the war to boost the morale of their populations. Extensively illustrated with historic photographs and newsreel stills, this absorbing book analyses key incidents and contemporary sources to show how both sides doctored the news, exaggerating enemy casualties while minimizing their own, and giving false impressions about the success or failure of missions – and even whole campaigns.
