Product Description

Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read! - by Coolhandlee 17 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How can a life story full of such drama and conflict cost £1 on kindle!! It's ridiculous!
Mike Nicholson is nothing short of a hero (no doubt he won't agree) yet his professional life can be bought for so much less than the pathetic, useless "celebrity" profiles published today.
I grew up watching the incisive reports of this dedicated journalist from Vietnam onward, and he really is one of my hero's! Not only a true journalist, but a man with true humanity and independence, as he demonstrated with Natasha in Sarajevo. His regular, compelling, contributions on TV are sadly missed.
I hope you read this Mike and I salute you!
A highly recommended read! All life is here!

5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking read 14 April 2014

It is easy to overlook the dangers that journalists are in when covering wars or skirmishes. But this really drove it home. The book lets you in to the mind sets of these people dedicated to bringing the facts to the watching world. Harrowing at times, it was one of those books that was difficult to put down once started.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Dangerous Occupation 8 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found this book quite harrowing to read because the author includes graphic descriptions of the many instances of man's inhumanity to man that he witnessed during his coverage of the various conflicts he visited. The book is well written apart from some silly spelling errors, one or two of which are unintentionally comical and should have been edited out. I found the book useful as aide memoire as I had forgotten some of the background to these conflicts and it was interesting and informative to read the author's 'inside' story of his involvement in these wars in various countries around the world. I would recommend the book to anyone interested in discovering what is involved in being a war correspondent and how Michael became one of the best in recent times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reading. 26 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book brought back long lost memories from wars I had l forgotten about and had passed into history. He has a wealth of inside knowledge exposing the lies about the war in Iraq, when we all knew it was about OIL.
His account of the Vietnam war is unsurpassed, I have read many accounts of that war mostly written by Americans which I took with a large pinch of scepticism.
He was not afraid of exposing politicians who took us to war for their own ends, Bush and Blair spring to mind. What a callous pair of bas***ds they are.
I am an ex soldier and many of comrades lie in graves because of them.
