Buchbeschreibung zu „A Measure of Danger“

Over the past 25 years, Michael Nicholson has covered more wars and conflicts than almost any other TV reporter. Vietnam and Cambodia, Israel and Lebanon, Cyprus and Soweto, Angola and the Falklands – Michael Nicholson reported them all.

A Measure of Danger is a classic insider's account of the men who fight and those who report the fighting, of the brave and the foolish, the leaders and the led, the victors and the victims. Above all, it is an ironic, vivid and unforgettable testament to the brutality and the futility of war.

This ebook edition has been updated to include the Gulf Wars – his reporting of which led to Michael Nicholson being awarded the OBE – and his return to the Falklands in 2012.
