During the Irish War of Independence, the fighting also took place in the pages of the newspapers on both sides. Violence towards journalists was common. Inevitably, the journalists and newspapers became not just chroniclers of events but participants. This is a clear account of how the newspapers worked and reported amidst the storm of suppression, censorship, intimidation, propaganda, and violence.
