War Junkie: One Man's Addiction to the Worst Places on Earth - Jon Steele

Heard the author interviewed on the radio, and knew I had to read the book. Managed to get it from the library, and once I read it I went looking for a copy to buy (which I eventually found at my favourite 2nd hand bookshop. Woot!) Totally blew me away. An intimate look at some of the really awful international news stories from the end of last century. I found this quite unputdownable.What I really wanted (and would still quite like), tho, was some kind of companion DVD or website or something that had all the news clips that Jon Steele refers to in the book. I know I must have seen some of his work over the years.
