Soon after starting work as an ITN cameraman, Jon Steele began to feel strangely at home in the kind of places ordinary people get evacuated from. In Moscow, he filmed in the midst of chaos as armed rebels and militia fought hand-to-hand battles on the streets. In Rwanda, he filmed the horrific aftermath to the most brutal massacre of modern times. In Zaire, he filmed endless fields full of young children deranged by hunger and ravaged by cholera. And finally in Bosnia, Jon realized that he had seen and filmed more than he could cope with, and finally spiralled into a deep emotional meltdown.

Reading this book i found out how harrowing and sorrowful different warzones are around the world. Jon Steele tells us all with such conviction, that its almost as if you can touch the dying in Zaire. Its a truly memorable book that encapsulates everything to do with the trials and tribulations that is being a camera man. And Mr Steele delivers it with such vigour and black humour that i couldnt put this book down.
