Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Here it all is, a vast Marie Colvin box set, poignant beyond words’ Guardian

Tributes to Marie Colvin:

John Witherow, Sunday Times editor: ‘She was somebody who was fun, full of life with joie de vivre and friends all over the world. During her time she saved many lives by highlighting the plight of victims of violence. Everywhere she had gone she tried to help people because she believed she was a witness to the violence that was going on and that she could make a difference’

Peter Bouckaert, Human Rights Watch: ‘For Marie, covering war wasn't about doing a few quick interviews and writing up a quick story: she experienced war alongside those who suffered in war, and her writings had a particular vividness because of what she had dared to see and experience’

Lyse Doucet, BBC: ‘The world will miss her because she was the eyes and ears of so many. Marie always admired the pioneering journalism of fellow American Martha Gelhorn. I always saw her as the Martha of our generation: brave and beautiful’

Max Hastings, author of All Hell Let Loose: ‘All her life, all over the world, she was drawn to record the experiences of civilian victims, who found themselves living and dying in a universe from which compassion and justice had been banished…Colvin was killed doing her best thing, in full knowledge of its perils…This collection of words is her most appropriate memorial because it so vividly explains why her peers admired her so much’

About the Author

She was killed while covering the Siege of Homs in Syria on the 22nd of February 2012.

What a remarkable woman! Such a loss that we won't see more columns like these. I am glad to own the book.

This is a wonderful tribute to a daring journalist who put her purpose ahead of her personal safety. Only wish she had more time to be with us.

This collection is exceptional mostly because the writing and the subjects are compelling and need telling again and again.
This is not an easy read--she really makes you feel strong emotions..at least she did for me. I read a few articles at a time and then put the book down for another time.

I got this book after the death of Ma. Colvin and my only regret is that I did not follow her journalism career during her lifetime. She is a fantastic writer and it almost seems like you are there with her. A must read for people interested in not only journalism but foreign affairs

This is a book that could have been written about any war in the history of humankind. I found it depressing, although it is amazing what some individuals can endure - both the victims and the journalists.
