The Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78, which lasted for almost eleven months, and was fought in two fronts, is an important war that changed the international equilibrium and gave rise to universal consequences still felt today. Apart from the socio-cultural, demographic, economic and political depression brought upon the Ottoman Empire, the war also resulted in reshaping to a great extent the Caucasus and the Balkans, resulting to the foundation of new states where today nearly 60 million people live. The aim of this research is discuss the propaganda activities -mostly against the Ottomans-of Russian, English, American, French, German, Italian, Swedish, Austrian and Prussian journalists working under the harsh conditions of Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78 and their articles and caricatures.

This forms the basis of the thesis alongside information on journalists active during the war.
