dc.description.abstractIn this age of mass media, it is important to be able to find the truth in between the sensationalising and embellishments, especially when it concerns controversial topics. This thesis analyses Generation Kill, the narrative of Evan Wright who is an embedded reporter that joined a platoon of First Recon Marines during the first weeks of the invasion of Iraq, on the representation of reality. Not only Evan Wright's Generation Kill (2004) - a work of literary journalism that wraps the facts in a literary jacket - will be discussed, but also the HBO adaptation Generation Kill (2008) - a fictional adaptation of a non-fiction work. The thesis will answer how Generation Kill by Evan Wright and the HBO series of the same name blur the boundary between fact and fiction and how an adaptation of a non-fiction work can provide a different perspective to the fidelity debate.en_US
