Book Festival | War Journalism
Sun, Sep. 22, 2019 1:30pm — 2:30pm
Paul Moorcraft has had a fascinating and varied career. He is best known for his experience in war zones, which led to work for the military as an instructor at both Sandhurst and the Staff College, international business, and both print and broadcast news. He has worked in frontline combat alongside Jihadists in places as varied as Afghanistan, Bosnia and Sudan. His recent book, The Jihadist Threat, was shortlisted for the British Army military book of the year. As a film producer, political commentator and Whitehall warrior, he has many stories to tell, which have resulted in the publication of over 30 books.
Paul will draw on his latest books on war reporting, Deadlines on the Front Line and Dying for the Truth: a History of Frontline Combat Reporting, to tell us some of the amusing and hair raising moments in danger zones he has experienced.
