|MY WAR GONE BY, I MISS IT SO by Anthony Loyd
A vivid, haunting account of the war in Bosnia from 1993 until 1996, from where the author reported for the Daily Telegraph and then the Times. While snipers shot people indiscriminately Loyd, living on whisky-chased adrenaline, fought to understand the compulsion he felt to be there.
