    "Dispatches" meets "Fear and Loathing in Las Vega

    "Dispatches" meets "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."

    No drugs are consumed on the road  to Kosovo, though. Greg Campbell doesn't need them to be at least as funny as Hunter S.  Thompson in his prime.

    It is possible to face all the misery of the Balkan Wars in the 1990s and beyond, and still maintain a healthy appreciation of the absurd and a crooked sense of humor. It has been proven by this touching, funny and sad book by Greg Cambell. Plus, it is full of information. I acquired the first details of what went on in Srebrenica and Foca from this brave book.  Didn't even know there was a place called Foca before this.
