War correspondents

War correspondentsIn these times of constant wars in different regions of the world, we can be informed about those terrible events by means of those characters who by risking their lives, are able to give us information of the facts; I am referring to war correspondents.

But, perhaps, our readers will be surprised to know that the first war correspondent was not a man, but a woman who lived and worked for more than two centuries in England.

"The Rally Courant" was the first newspaper that achieved publishing success in London, and which director was an enterprising woman of great talent, called Elizabeth Mellet, who deeply disliked the lateness with which the warlike campaign’s news from Marlborough were reported in England.

To remedy this situation, she rented a small boat with which she went all over the mainland ports and picked up the latest news on the stages of armed conflicts. Thus she managed to get news of war much earlier than English Government itself, which put her newspaper at the head of all of her time.
