My War Gone by, I Miss it So

Born to a distinguished military family, Loyd longed to experience war from the front line. After serving in the Gulf War he went to Bosnia as a war correspondent. There he became enmeshed in one of the most callous clashes on European soil. Addicted to the adrenaline of combat, when he returned home he found no more peace than in battle. And so began a longstanding battle against drug abuse. These harrowing accounts from the trenches show humanity at its worst and best. This is an uncompromising look at the terrifyingly seductive power of war.

About the Author

Anthony Loyd is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has reported from numerous conflict zones including the Balkans, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Iraq and Chechnya. A former infantry officer, he left the British army after the First Gulf War and went to live in Bosnia, where he started reporting for The Times. My War Gone By, I Miss It So is his memoir of that conflict. More recently, in 2014, he was kidnapped, shot and then escaped while reporting in Syria.


`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
