Christian Jennings is an experienced journalist who has reported on conflicts and humanitarian crises from Africa to the Balkans. MIDNIGHT IN SOME BURNING TOWN follows a number of Special Forces teams from the interventions in Serbia, Kosovo and Macedonia to the invasion of Afghanistan, the overthrow of the Taliban and the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

Midnight in Some Burning Town Reviews


'... an absorbing and authoritative read... a thoughtful and provocative book, never more so than when Jennings turns his expert eye on the proliferation of private security outfits in Iraq, expecially Baghdad.' DAILY MAIL 'Christian Jennings has pulled off a bit of a coup in writing his revealing account of SAS actions in a number of campaigns from the Balkans to Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq. The spills and thrills of the men in the black balaclavas, desert turbans and shamargs dazzle and amaze like the fables of Scheherezade and the Thousand and One Nights.' EVENING STANDARD
