Henry Nevison was a renowned British war correspondent (1856 - 1941) who keenly observed the dramatic political and military conflicts of his day. This book is the first major biography, drawing together his commentary over a period of fifty years. In diaries and print, Nevinson tracked wars from Greece to South Africa and covered the key events of the First World War. He exposed slavery in the Portuguese Empire, championed women's suffrage, struggles in Ireland and the Balkans and visited Palestine, Iraq and the US in the 1920s. Nevinson's original perspectives help to explain the modern world order and the political conflicts of today.
