It added greatly to the fatigue and discomforts of the marching troops, but did not materially delay them. He did this by orchestrating a group of hand picked professional correspondents of the highest skill and integrity, and by setting up a network to deliver their supremely accurate reports very rapidly to the Herald offices allowing the newspaper to scoop the competition by days. The air was filled with the roar of battle; and with leaves and twigs from saplings and trees. However, the standards of professionalism were not at all universal in the press of the age. It is also an extremely entertaining one that makes an exciting reading. For these reasons newspaper reporters were generally mistrusted if not reviled by professional military leaders.
