Fergal Keane is multi-award winning foreign correspondent and best-selling writer whose account of one of the Second World War's most extraordinary battles has just been published by Harper Collins. The book 'Road of Bones: the Siege of Kohima 1944' tells the story of the epic struggle at Kohima where a tiny British and Indian garrison held off an entire enemy division and halted the attempted Japanese invasion of northeastern India. It is a story of heroism and brutality and the folly of imperial dreams. The book is the fruit of intensive research in Britain, Japan and India and brings vividly to life the intensity of the hand to hand combat and the horror of the Japanese retreat back into Burma. Keane's previous works include an account of the Rwandan genocide, "Season of Blood" (Penguin Books), which won the George Orwell prize as well as the top ten bestseller, 'Letter To Daniel.' He has also been awarded the James Cameron and Edward R.Murrow prizes, among many others. He is the author of four previous books and two collections of journalism. Keane works as a Special Correspondent with BBC News and lives in London with his wife and two children.
