Weller’s War is a posthumously released collection of reporting by Pulitzer Prize-winning war journalist George Weller. Edited by his son Anthony, the anthology contains Weller’s chronicles of the Second World War from across the world. Weller begins with observations of the early toll of war on Eastern Europe, then moves further afield, reporting on the fall of Singapore, the civil war in Greece and the threat of guerilla incursions in Burma. Throughout, Weller’s challenges are communicated in bold detail and his experiences recall the dexterity of war reporting before the advent of near-instant global communication.
