Dying for the Truth

War correspondents are crucial to both democracy and the right of the public to know the truth. In this fascinating, highly readable memoir Paul Moorcraft examines the impact of technology on how correspondents do their job, arguing that without them, politicians of all colours would be tempted to manipulate events with their own propaganda and spin. The author is a veteran journalist who has covered conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“Moorcraft has delivered a book that’s both prescient and more than relevant to our times.”
