Sir Philip Gibbs was one of the most widely read English journalists ofthe first half of the twentieth century. Prior to 1914 he reported onindustrial unrest, Ireland, the suffragette movement, royal births, deaths andcoronations, the sinking of the Titanic, and the Balkan War in 1912. Thiscoverage of his writing offers a broad insight into British social andpolitical developments, government and press relations, propaganda, and warreporting during the First World War. Asa war correspondent on the Western Front, his articles, which appeared on bothsides of the Atlantic, did much to shape civilian attitudes during the FirstWorld War and its immediate aftermath. Many critics dismissed Gibbs' work aspropaganda and his acceptance of a knighthood in 1920 as a reward. His writingin the post-war years covered the full range of inter-war European politics,the Second World War, and the Cold War.
