    I like memoirs of journalists and humanitarian workers You would find in them details and stories within large historical events that would compliment history books and illustrate them with names, faces, and events that would make them easy to imagine and understand This is the case particularly when they are well written by a traveller who is observant and who has a good command of his language and imagery.Edward Behr is a great journalist and has been a foreign correspondent in a particularly interesting period of the Twentieth Century Having been a soldier in British India and in Indonesia in the Second World War and then a foreign correspondent working for Reuters, Time Life, and freelancing his way through Pakistan, India, Algeria, Congo, China, Hong Kong, and Vietnam.He has been lucky or unlucky, depending on how you look at things enough to live through the wars of independent in Algeria, sit for dinner with Chairman Mao, and go through the rough battle fields of Vietnam war including witnessing the Tet offensive in 1968 He writes about all that rigorously but with a personal touch that is easy to follow and sympathise with Unlike some others, he doesn t come across as a vio...

    I read this ages ago, but it sticks It s a war correspondant s memoir, and provides a really good insight into the process of how people become inured to shocking things, and how they compartmentalize these experience...

    The subtitle of AHBRSE is, A Foreign Correspondent s Life Behind the Lines But a relevant subtitle for today would be, Tales from the Age of Big Budget Journalism Behr worked for LIFE, TIME, NEWSWEEK, SATURDAY EVENING POST, and Reuters in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s, reporting from hot spots such as India during partition, Algeria during the war of independence with France, the Belgian Congo during de colonization, and the American war in Vietnam amongst other places The title of the book, incidentally, is just a throw away line Behr overheard from a BBC television reporter The book is chiefly tales of adventure You won t find many great truths about journalism handed down from on high but in the introduction Behr does note that, For obvious reasons, which include the short attention span of readers and economic ...

    This was a fascinating memoir of a foreign correspondent, Edward Behr The title refers to a bizarre and callous approach of another journalist when Belgians were being evacuated from Belgian Congo Zaire He pursued conflict from continent to continent leading to some disturbing, some funny, some interesting stories Apparently the U.S publisher insisted on changing the title to something completely innocuous, Bearings A Foreign Correspondent s Life Behind the Lines, which according to his obit in The Guardian , led to a decline in sales He brought back the original title in subsequent editions.From his upbringing as the child of Russian Jewish immigrants in France and England to his experiences of wars in Algeria, Congo, India, China, Vietnamhe ...

    Like The Farm above, I bought this from Ayr s best second hand charity book shop, and surprised myself by managing to finish it Perhaps this was because some of the best chapters were at the end and covered Vietnam, where the absurdity of what was going on and how battles were fought was really well conveyed Books and accounts like this must have inspired Apocalypse Now , and the author pulls no punches about the use and abuse of drugs throughout the conflict I have a suspicion, however, that this k...

    Picked this up for its weird title which refers to a question shouted out by a war correspondent walking through a group of war victims in Africa, if I remember correctly at a flea market, and read it as an entertaining collection of war correspondent anecdotes Being an economist the one I ve told the most often is how a small island ended up using Monopoly money during WWII and how this became one of the most valuable currencies since the prin...

    Probably one of the best reporter s memoirs in existence Very interesting material on a range of African and Asian countries in the 50s and 60s including Algeria, China, and Vietnam It has the added virtue of being only slightly self congratulatory, and often very funny It is not for nothin...

    Mr Behr is the type of reporter in other words, a professional smart ass which I aspired to someday become in my misspent youth This memoir is an enjoyable and absorbing read, and the author, despite his conversational and eminently readable style, manages to convey quite a l...

    A truly honest objective and brave report of war in the days before some journalists paid kids to throw rocks at tanks to build up a story within budget And by doing so built up the war they were reporting on.

    John Stackhouse in Mass Disruption says it captures the bare knuckled life of foreign correspondents in the sixties and seventies.
