As new condition large paperback.

Marie Colvin, described as 'the greatest war correspondent of her generation', was killed in a rocket attack in February 2012 while reporting on the desperate suffering of civilians inside Syria's besieged Homs. Under the Wire is war photographer Paul Conroy's gripping, visceral and moving account of his friendship with Marie and in particular the final year he spent working alongside her. When Marie and Paul were smuggled into Syria by rebel forces, they found themselves trapped in one of the most hellish neighbourhoods on earth. Marie was tragically killed by a rocket which also blew a hole in Paul's thigh, big enough for him to put this hand through. Bleeding profusely, short of food and water and in excruciating pain, Paul then endured five days of intense bombardment before eventually being evacuated in a daring escape involving a motorbike ride through a tunnel, crawling through enemy terrain and, finally, climbing a 10-foot-high wall. Astonishingly vivid, heart-stoppingly dramatic and shot through with the darkest of humour, in Under the Wire Paul Conroy shows what it means to be a war reporter in the 21st century. His is the story of two people drawn together by a shared compulsion to bear witness.
