Martin Bell has spent more than half a century in unquiet corners of the world, including the surrogate war zone of the House of Commons. During that time, the way that wars have been fought and perceived, and the way that news has been gathered and presented has changed radically. From Vietnam to Bosnia and beyond, this is a moving, personal account of war, with an impassioned call to put the substance back into our news.
From the ranks of the Suffolk Regiment, Martin Bell emerged to become one of the BBC's best-known war reporters. He covered conflicts from Vietnam to Bosnia, where he was wounded. In 1997 he became the first elected Independent MP for 50 years. He is now an Ambassador for UNICEF and an author. His eight books include one of poetry. He had a chrysanthemum named after him at the Chelsea Flower Show in 2014.
