    Beschreibung "This is both the first account in book form by a motion picture operator describing his work, and the first book about the filming of war. Its subject is the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902, often described as the first media war, because film cameras were there to record it and transmit something of war’s reality to audiences far away. Dickson filmed for the British Mutoscope and Biograph Company between November 1899 and June 1900, covering the battles of Colenso and Spion Kop, and the triumphal captures of Ladysmith, Bloemfontein and Pretoria. The book is in the form of a diary, and documents in engrossing detail the trials and tribulations of documenting a war with camera equipment that weighed over a tonne."
