Publisher's Summary

With elegance and unsparing honesty, special correspondent for The Times of London, Anthony Loyd records this harrowing account of modern war. My War Gone By, I Miss It So exposes the unspeakable terror, visceral thrill of combat, and countless lives laid waste in Europe’s bloodiest conflict since World War II. Unsatisfied by a brief stint in the British army and driven by the despair of drug dependence, the author was searching for excitement when he set out for Bosnia in 1993. Nothing prepared him for the brutal life-and-death struggle he discovers there among the Serbs, Croatians, and Bosnian Muslims. As he writes of the shocking chaos, he finds a chilling purpose to his life as a journalist. Anthony Loyd has become an award-winning international reporter whose work is compared to the classics of war literature. With this powerful book, he takes an uncompromising look at the horrifying savagery and seductive power of war. British actor Steven Crossley masterfully conjures up the sights, smells, and sounds of a country being torn apart.

Fun book. Low anti Serb bias for an Anglo

Serbs were lambasted in the Western media. It was the whabbi Muslim separatists who started the killing. Just like Kosovo, Syria and Burma now. The US flew Saudi jihadists into Bosnia with military transport planes. As Clinton emails say, jihad is a volatile but usefull asset for the west.

The war in the Balkans, 1992-1995

An English journalist experience during the Balkans war in the early and mid 1990s. Also a brief stint in Chechnya. From reading this book, obviously war is hell.
