Excerpt from Five Fronts: On the Firing-Lines With English-French, Austrian, German and Russian Troops

So last November in Budapest William G. Shepherd of the United Press and I were puzzled by placards on dead walls headed: Hirdetmeny!

"Sounds like some kind of crime," I said. "But what crime?" To this day I do not know what the word means.)

"Murder, perhaps," said Shep. "They're advertising the finish of 'War Correspondents,' old style."

Maybe the reporter is harder to kill. He is apt to care little for messing with generals, or to pose as a tactician. He knows that one comes closer to the realities of war by mingling afoot with peasantry and troopers, than when convoyed by staff officers and allowed to see only what they permit, to learn what they want him to know. He smiles at the pretensions of "War Correspondents," who ape military dress, soldiers' ways of conduct, and collect decorations.
