5.0 out of 5 stars The Title Alone 23 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I must admit - I first bought it for the title. Irresistible. Such a talking point!
But, it's better than that. Brilliant read and excellent source if information about the post-WWII era.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining but not Scoop 25 Mar 2013
By William Cohen VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
This is a brisk and enlightening memoir from a buccaneering foreign correspondent. Behr was a fan of Evelyn Waugh's Scoop and he tries to bring some of the flavour of that great novel to his biography. He is amusing, and he tells some fine anecdotes. He has pertinent things to say about politicians and the pursuit of 'facts'. There's some fascinating background to the problems the French faced in Algeria and the Americans endured in Vietnam. I got through it quickly, and enjoyed it, without seeing it as a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great journalist view of history 11 Feb 2004
By Rick Bruner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Just finishing it. I ate it up, reading 40+ pages a night, which is a lot for me. Great insider view into history of wars in India (WWII era), Algeria and Vietnam. Also, really good insights into how journalists *really* see the world they report on. Thoroughly enjoyable memoir of one who lived life on the front line.

3.0 out of 5 stars Dry in parts 30 Sep 2003
By Shimmertje - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I picked this book up hoping it would be an expose of journalism. Mr Behr does include a few snippets, but I got mired in a lot of political analysis, and couldn't finish the book. This is a great book if you like wars and want to understand what went on behind the scenes from a journalists' point of view. I'm just not the political type.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting as both political and journalism history 6 Feb 2010
By Jonathan H. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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".
