Daniel Lang

Daniel Lang was a journalist who worked for The New Yorker magazine from 1941 until his death in 1981.

During World War II, Lang served as a war correspondent, writing from Italy, France, and North Africa. In the aftermath of the war, at the same time that he wrote "Displaced" about Kurt Maier, Lang famously reported on atomic testing and the moral complexities of developing atomic bombs. In 1948, he published Early Tales of Atomic Age, a treatise about the implications of building and deploying the Hydrogen Bomb.

His 1969 "Casualties of War" became a 1989 film staring Sean Penn and Michael J. Fox (Casualties of War).
