The Philby conspiracy by Bruce Page ( Book )
14 editions published between 1968 and 1981 in English and held by 1,478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Kim Philby, a spy novelist at the peak of his imaginative powers, would scarcely dare to invent the story contained in these extroardinary pages. That a son of the British establishment could, during a thirty year career in his country's secret service, at the same time be a dedicated Communist agent would seem too far-fetched even for fiction. Here in detail is the incredible story, not only of how Philby did it, but what he did and its awesome consequences; of how he betrayed his country, his service and his friends and, above all, the class which nurtured, shaped and finally protected him

The eye of war : words and photographs from the front line by Phillip Knightley ( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 600 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Eye of War is a chronicle of the changing face of conflict as recorded by the men and women who went to the front and captured on film, or in words, the experience of battle." "From the Crimean War, the American Civil War, through two world wars, Vietnam and the two recent Gulf Wars to the Balkans and beyond, photographers have been drawn to the battlefront. Just as warfare has been transformed by technology, so have the cameras that document the watching, the waiting, the heat of battle, or the bloody aftermath; weapons have become more deadly whilst the camera has become smaller, quicker, sharper. The best photographs distil the chaos of war into visual icons that haunt the mind. This book selects 200 of the most powerful, together with poignant first-hand descriptions by battlefield witnesses, to make an outstanding visual record." "The great war photographers of each era are represented, including Robert Capa, W. Eugene Smith and Yevgeny Khaldei, all active in the Second World War; Don McCullin and Larry Burrows in Vietnam, and, currently, James Nachtwey. The vastness of the Pacific vies with the empty steppes of Russia in 1942, the squalor of the 1914-18 trenches with that of street fighting and innocent civilian casualties, particularly in more recent wars."--BOOK JACKET

The first casualty : the war correspondent as hero and myth-maker from the Crimea to Iraq by Phillip Knightley ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 419 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Since Vietnam, Phillip Knightley reveals, governments have become much more adept at managing the media, as highlighted in chapters on the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and the conflict between NATO and Serbia over Kosovo. And in a new chapter on the post-9/11 wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, Knightley details even greater degrees of government manipulation and media complicity - the "embedding" of reporters in military units and the uncritical, openly patriotic coverage of these conflicts. "The age of the war correspondent as hero," he concludes, "appears to be over." Fully updated, The First Casualty remains required reading for anyone concerned about freedom of the press, journalistic responsibility, and the nature of modern warfare."--BOOK JACKET
