Customer Review

on 4 June 2013
Paul Conroy is the real deal - a war photographer who has risked all on many occasions to travel into the world's worst places where the suffering of the locals is at its most extreme to reveal to the world what the world needs to know, but so often chooses to ignore. As such he takes far greater risks than any one individual should ever have to, with little specialist training or protection, no back up, certainly no weapon to defend himself and often with odds so insanely stacked against him that his assignments are close to suicidal. This his first book is a fitting tribute to such extraordinarily honest and brave work, and to those victims of war - the suffering men, women and children caught between the lines - whose stories we so seldom hear. In an age so bereft of real genuine heroes, Under the Wire is a testament to those who have lived - and died - for what they believe is right, and I cannot reccommend this book highly enough. As an added bonus Paul - a photographer and not by his own claims a writer - actually writes superbly well, so this work is a feast for the eye as well as for the conscience and the intellect. It kept me burning the midnight oil and gripped me to the end.
