Soon after starting work as an ITN cameraman, Jon Steele began to feel strangely at home in the kind of places ordinary people get evacuated from. In Moscow, he filmed in the midst of chaos as armed rebels and militia fought hand-to-hand battles on the streets. In Rwanda, he filmed the horrific aftermath to the most brutal massacre of modern times. In Zaire, he filmed endless fields full of young children deranged by hunger and ravaged by cholera. And finally in Bosnia, Jon realized that he had seen and filmed more than he could cope with, and finally spiralled into a deep emotional meltdown.

An adrenalin-fuelled, white-knuckle ride through the worst places on earth.
As a TV cameraman, Jon Steele filmed in most of the military hot-spots of the world -- Georgia, Moscow, Rwanda, Zaire, and Bosnia where he finally realized he had seen and filmed too many horrific things -- had in fact, been seconds from death himself. He spiralled out of control, deep into emotional meltdown.
His gripping story, packed with action, unexpected humour and emotional honesty, will challenge our assumptions about war, and the human capacity to inflict and endure suffering.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
"The most authentic literary recreation of the hollow terror, confusion and soul-crushing cacophony of battle I have read in decades."
