`Not since Michael Herr wrote Dispatches has any journalist written so persuasively about violence and its seductions.' Peter Beaumont, Observer | `Undoubtedly the most powerful and immediate book to emerge from the Balkan horror of ethnic civil war.' Antony Beevor, Daily Telegraph | `Deserves a place alongside George Orwell, James Cameron and Nicholas Tomalin. It is as good as war reporting gets. I have nowhere read a more vivid account of frontline fear and survival.' Martin Bell, The Times
