The cover picture is the journalist memorial wall in the Newseum of Washington D.C.

The museum has a special exhibition related to war correspondents.

War correspondents are constantly in immense danger as they report on and capture images of what is happening on the frontlines. To avoid intelligence leaks, their work is usually tightly controlled by the military and sometimes censored. This exhibition reviews the emergence of war correspondents and the role they have played in wars and conflicts, while also featuring stories of local journalists who have covered hostilities in various regions. Mention is made of several major wars in the 19th and 20th centuries.
