A great book on the Yugoslav Wars of the early 1990s. It tells the story of a war correspondent who wanted to experience war for himself first-hand so he hitchhiked his way into the Balkans. The book tells an amazing story of the best and worst that humanity has to offer during the Balkan's ethnic civil war. Not many books have been written about this conflict, and this one focused more on the author's perspective on the conflict; foregoing the overall military strategy of the war. My only wish was that we got a broader perspective of the civil war instead of one man's perspective. Still this is a book to recommend to anyone interested in military history.
The former soldier who fled depression and drug addiction in England to cover Europe's bloodiest conflict since the Second World War recounts extraordinary stories of brutality and compassion he recorded while in both Bosnia and Chechnya. Reprint.
