4) War Correspondent
They were the men and women who risked their lives at the front line to send the story home. Everywhere the soldiers went, it was their job to go too. Some never returned. Claire Hollingworth, a newspaper reporter assigned to Poland, took a shopping trip into Germany one summer afternoon and inadvertently discovered Hitler’s troops massing on the border. Her report broke the news of Poland’s invasion on September 1st. Billy Jordan, assigned to the Desert Campaign, found himself filming a turning point, the Battle of El Alamein. Later assignments in Tunis and Monte Cassino almost cost him his life. Harry Oaks, dispatched to film the liberation of a prisoner of war camp, found himself in the heart of never-before-seen horror at the concentration camp of Belsen.
