“My Diary North And South” written by William Howard Russell, edited by Fletcher Pratt, published by Harper Colophon Books in 1965, 268 pages.
“When news of what was going on in America at the close of 1860 and the beginning of 1861 reached London, it occurred to the editors of the Times that there was a very fine row brewing on the opposite side of the Atlantic, and that they had better get someone who knew the military business on the job. Their choice fell on William Howard Russell, who had been their correspondent during the Crimean War, and who had shown no little ability to see things and to set down what he saw in language that could be comprehended by anyone. Also - and public demand seems to make this inseparable from military experting - he was a reasonably good man with a crystal ball; could look into a situation and describe its military result with a high degree of probability.”
