Behr certainly covered a series of conflicts, mostly tribal or sectarian, but viewed through a cold war lens. His writing gives a glimpse into the events on the ground as well as some insight into the journalism industry. It's a both a relief and a reproof that reportage was sensational long before FoxNews was a cable outlet. If you have an interest in cold war history or combat conflict journalism, this memoir is for you.
Best for people who enjoy: military memoirs ("Quartered Safe Out Here", "Goodbye Darkness") or the movies, "Under Fire", "Salvador" and "The Year of Living Dangerously".
