In an age of international terror, where journalists themselves have become targets, more and more reports are issued from the sidelines. The dominance of social media has ushered in a post-truth world: Twitter rumours and unverifiable videos abound, and TV news seeks to entertain rather than inform.
In this compelling account, one of the outstanding journalists of our time provides a moving, personal account of war and issues an impassioned call to put the substance back in our news.


Martin Bell is both a former BBC war correspondent and a former Westminster MP. His previous books include Through the Gates of Fire and An Accidental MP.


Keelin Shanley is a journalist and presenter on RTE radio and television.
