G.W. Steevens was a British journalist and writer. As a journalist, he distinguished himself by his clearness of vision and vivid style, and was connected successively with the National Observer, the Pall Mall Gazette, and, from 1896, the Daily Mail. He was the most famous war correspondent of his time. Steevens utilised the articles which appeared in these and other publications in various books, such as Monologues of the Dead (1895), The Land of the Dollar (America) (1897), With the Conquering Turk (1897), The Tragedy of Dreyfus and his posthumous From Cape Town to Ladysmith, written while he was appointed by the Daily Mail as war correspondent to South Africa during the Second Boer War in 1899.
