A war correspondent is a journalist or foreign correspondent who covers stories firsthand from a war zone. Once in some of the most conflict-ridden parts of the world, they attempt to get close enough to the action to provide written accounts, photos, or film footage. Thus, this is often considered the most dangerous form of journalism. War coverage is also one of the most successful branches of journalism as newspaper sales increase greatly in wartime and television news ratings improve.
