Introduction

Write a comparison of the war stories from The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian and The Graphic novel. There are many different ways of writing reports, all having their strengths and weaknesses, techniques and purpose. In my comparison I will be looking at three different reports showing the same the war in different perspectives. The Daily Telegraph's Jim Muir starts his articles by explaining what has happened and the affect of the attack on not only the victims but the main leaders of the Bosnia War. It goes onto explain the affect of the victims claiming that 'Four men died instantly...the fifth was rushed to hospital with multiple wounds but was dead on arrival.' ...read more.

Middle

This makes the reader want to read on and find out more about this woman is and how she died. Once you read the article you understand that this is written in a story form. She is interviewing some one, and is telling what had happened in the interviewee's own words. The dead woman in the hospital is supposed to be the end of the story. Maggie O'Kane used the ending in the beginning of her report, as she knew that it would catch the general reader's eye, interested by this concealed woman. The story technique seems to work better than delivering straight facts. In stories you always expect one thing however receive another, this is the main reason why this report is much more fascinating than Jim Muir's. ...read more.

Conclusion

The reality of this war is blinded by expectations of Superheroes, as this text is aimed at teenagers. The story technique is the more effective than Jim Muir's form of writing reports, there is no 'element of surprise' in his report, which leaves the reader feeble-minded about the whole situation. Nevertheless Maggie O'Kane's report surrenders the reader to a more imaginative idea of the Bosnian War and also first hand experiences. The graphic novel was a good attempt to show the authenticity of war however failed to the suspicion of Superheroes saving the day. I may conclude that the bets form of war writing is Maggie O'Kane's a story which delivers the facts but also pleases the reader with first hand accounts. ...read more.
