World War Two - War Correspondents

Life War Correspondent Ro...

Read about how the American press corps prepared for D-Day...

Ernest Hemingway of Time Magazine (Coronet Magazine, 1953)

These two pages originally appeared in a magazine photo-essay that lightly covered the life and work of Ernest Hemingway (1899 1961) eleven years prior to his rendezvous with his favorite shotgun.

"Most of his adult life has been spent following wars across the face of the earth. In 1917 he went to Italy as an ambulance driver, came out with a fistful of medals and 237 bits of shrapnel in his legs."

Prior to working as a war correspondent for TIME and COLLIER'S during the Second World War, Hemingway had written for a number of other outlets in six other conflicts.

 

Bob Miller of the United Press (Coronet Magazine, 1944)

"On the day following the first landing made by United States Marines on Guadalcanal, United Press' Bob Miller accomplished something which probably no other war correspondent has ever done. Singlehanded, he captured a Jap prisoner."

"During the six weeks he spent on Guadalcanal, Miller's group was bombed almost daily during the entire time, and Jap ground forces were a constant threat."

Miller was known to one and all in the Pacific Theater as "Baldy". Shortly before this article appeared in CORONET he had fallen victim to malaria and was returned to the U.S. for convelesence. In 1944 his dispatches to the UnitedPress would concern the liberation of France and the Nuremburg Trials.

 

John Thompson of the Chicago Tribune
(Coronet Magazine, 1944)

John Thompson of THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE saw more of the World War II than most other correspondents. He had witnessed to the Battle of the Bulge, the liberation of Paris and the horrors of the Buchenwald death camp. Throughout his life, Thompson held the distinction of being the last surviving war correspondent to land on Omaha Beach during the D-Day landings; by war's end he had been awarded the Purple Heart, nine battle stars and was the first correspondent to receive the Medal of Freedom. This column was written in 1943 and pertains to some of his experiences in North Africa and Sicily.

 

Richard McMillan of the United Press (Newsweek Magazine, 1943)

 

Tom Treanor of the L.A. Times (Coronet Magazine, 1944)

War correspondent Tom Treanor of the Los Angeles Times was billed by writer Damon Runyon as "one of the four best reporters developed in this war.":

"Landing in Cairo just about the time Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was approaching Alexandria, Treanor went to the British to obtain an accreditation certificate as a war correspondent. But since the British didn't know him they wouldn't accredit him. Undaunted he went out and bought a set of correspondent's insignia for 70 cents, borrowed an army truck, and made a trip to the front and back before the British realized he was gone. They stripped him of his illegal insignia, but in the meantime Tom had obtained material for several 'hot' columns."

Treanor was killed in France shortly after this column went to press.

 

Leo Disher of the United Press (Coronet Magazine, 1944)

"Leo Disher was among the war correspondents who sailed for Africa with the American invasion fleet late in October of 1942... Army authorities were so impressed with his conduct under fire that they presented him with a Purple Heart [he was the first W.W. II reporter to earn this distinction]. More important was the fact that the story he dictated from his hospital cot after the shooting was over was displayed on the front pages of most of the UP papers."
