War reporter by Martin Fletcher( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year is 1994, and Tom Layne, a famous American TV journalist, and his crew are reporting in Sarajevo. Usually Tom is good at avoiding trouble, but this time he and his young cameraman and a ravishing interpreter named Anna get waylaid by rebel forces and bad things happen. Fifteen years later Layne returns to Bosnia and Serbia to make a documentary on Ratko Mladic, the war criminal who caused the tragedy. Ratko is still in hiding and has become the most wanted man in Europe. Driven by the need for catharsis, Tom and a reluctant Anna team up again to pursue their enemy, who is still protected by Serb fighters. The closer the journalists get to Ratko, the more his henchmen try to stop them. But they persevere, and as their love grows, Tom and Anna realize they have solved the mystery of why Ratko had never been caught. But will they live to tell the tale? Winner of a Jewish National Book Award and author of The List and Jacob's Oath, both of which achieved outstanding critical acclaim, NBC Special Correspondent Martin Fletcher delivers another breathtaking tale of love, war, and redemption

Breaking news : a stunning and memorable account of reporting from some of the most dangerous places in the world by Martin Fletcher( Book )

3 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During three decades covering wars, revolutions, and natural disasters, Fletcher worked his way from news agency cameraman to top network correspondent, facing down his own fears while facing up to mass killers, warlords, and murderers. With humor and elegance, Fletcher describes his growth from clueless adventurer to grizzled veteran of the world's battlefields. His working philosophy of "Get in, get close, get out, get a drink," put him repeatedly in harm's way, but he never lost sight of why he did it. In a world obsessed with celebrities, leaders, and wealth, Fletcher took a different route: he focused on those left behind, those paying the price. He answers the question: Why should we care?--From publisher description
