Martin Bell is a respected name in British broadcasting. Although the veteran of ten earlier wars, he has been most deeply affected by his experiences in Bosnia. In this book Bell paints a picture of the life of a war reporter and examines the role, methods and morality of the media.
After a lifetime of impartial reporting for the BBC from the world's war zones and trouble spots, Martin Bell writes about the human misery and political cynicism that makes up the war in Bosnia. A veteran of ten earlier wars nothing has moved or angered him more than this war and the political failure of the UN and the governments of the West to respond to it. He writes about military inefficiency, political hypocrisy and indifference, the suffering of Serbs, Muslims and Croats alike and the uneasy relationship between "news", and those who convey it and the political response back home.
