When Marie and Paul were smuggled into Syria by rebel forces, they found themselves trapped in one of the most hellish neighborhoods on earth. Fierce barrages of heavy artillery fire rained down on the buildings surrounding them, killing and maiming hundreds of civilians. Marie was killed by a rocket that also blew hole in Paul's thigh, big enough to put his hand through. Bleeding profusely, short of food and water and in excruciating pain, Paul then endured five days of intense bombardment before being evacuated in a daring escape involving a motorbike ride through a tunnel, crawling through enemy terrain, and finally climbing a 12-foot-high wall.
Astonishingly vivid, heart-stoppingly dramatic, and shot through with the darkest of humor, in Under the Wire Paul Conroy shows what it means to a be a war reporter in the 21st century. His is a story of two brave people drawn together by a shared compulsion to bear witness.

It is totally annoying that you want us to can a review to your templates. If we are going to write a review we don't need you pushing us into pigeonholes that may, or may not, suit the book, or what we have to say. These questions assume your readers have middle school mentalities, single digit IQs and can't think.
