Covering two world wars, revolutions, discoveries and the rise and fall of empires across the globe, We Were There reports on the defining moments of the last hundred years, from the turn of the last century through the Wall Street Crash and D-Day, to the Vietnam War, Tiananmen Square and 9/11. In a period of vast technological advancement that has given birth to mass- circulation newspapers, television and the Internet, these evocative reports from around the world prove that the art of eyewitness reporting is as gripping and as valuable as ever.

We Were There includes not only some of the best journalism of the last century but also the private confidence of diaries and letters. Each selection from sources as diverse as Ernest Hemingway, Neil Armstrong, Woody Gurthrie, James Cameron and Hunter S. Thompson, is preceded by a brief introduction that illuminates the passage1s historical context and introduces the author.
Robert Fox has been a reporter, author, and broadcaster for nearly 40 years. He has reported from the front lines of conflicts around the world. He is Defense Correspondent for The Evening Standard and senior associate fellow at the Centre for Defense Studies at King's College, London.
