Summary
Martin Bell has served as a corporal in a colonial army, been embedded with British forces, gone on missions with Americans and crossed the Suez Canal with the Israelis. He has kept the company of soldiers, warlords, mercenaries and militias, and even attended one of Idi Amin's weddings. From Vietnam to Yemen, Bell has been in the thick of it, witnessing first-hand the dramatic changes in how wars are fought and reported. Drawing on his experiences as a journalist and a soldier, the respected former BBC correspondent provides a moving, personal account of war - its futility and its failures - and an impassioned take on what we've lost in twenty-first century reporting
