A brief note on D Day

Today I’ll be remembering the bravery of all those involved.

There’s an interesting article on the BBC website today about  the D Day war corespondents. I am an evangelist for the power of reporters, especially in times of conflict. Let’s not forget the first though, the magnificent William Howard Russell of The Times.

Robert Fisk wrote a powerful piece for The Independent a while back on morality and war reporting. A free press was one of the issues at stake at D Day. I thought I’d point your attention to these articles.
