" The most authentic literary recreation of the hollow terror, confusion and soul-crushing cacophony of battle I have read in decades." -- "Evening Standard"
From the Inside Flap
An adrenalin-fuelled, white-knuckle ride through the worst places on earth.
As a TV cameraman, Jon Steele filmed in most of the military hot-spots of the world -- Georgia, Moscow, Rwanda, Zaire, and Bosnia where he finally realized he had seen and filmed too many horrific things -- had in fact, been seconds from death himself. He spiralled out of control, deep into emotional meltdown.
His gripping story, packed with action, unexpected humour and emotional honesty, will challenge our assumptions about war, and the human capacity to inflict and endure suffering.From the Trade Paperback edition.
