Time hasn't faded this books great writing. It is a very interesting and well written account of conflict from a different view than we are used to. Usually you get the government line, or what 15second sound bite fit into that day's news depending on the personal beliefs of the network owner. But this is a view from someone who is there watching history unfold without interfering. It's a great story too of the lengths that reporters have to go to get to the story and to get it out of the countr ...more

Từ chiến trường khốc liệt của Peter Arnett, phóng viên chiến trường người Mỹ gốc New Zealand, bản dịch tiếng Việt của Phạm Hoàng Chung. Bản gốc tiếng Anh hình như dài hơn, bản tiếng Việt chỉ dịch những phần liên quan đến Việt Nam và Iraq. Đọc để thấy cuộc sống của những phóng viên chiến trường như thế nào, trong nhiều trường hợp họ dũng cảm còn hơn những người lính trực tiếp chiến đấu. Lính thì có thế bỉ đẩy ra chiến trường còn phóng viên tự nguyện lao đầu vào chốn hiểm nguy. Đọc cũng để thấy ở ...more
I read this years before Mr. Arnett was fired for daring to question George W. Bush's record in the National Guard. I remember thinking that the book itself felt like a 90 minute ticket to stories from a war correspondents dinner, so I was doubly surprised that what Arnett had written years later was considered controversial.

Peter Arnett lives it all, a war corespondent that allows you to experience it all from a reporter's point of view, in going to the field, covering the news, writing up the dispatch and sending to the news offices in New York. Its a journey to understand
Reportage rather than autobiography; Arnett reveals little of himself or his life, but a lot of war reporting anecdotes, mostly from the Vietnam War, and I think there are better books on that.
Lots of war anecdotes. Good for those who love field journalism.
