Anthony Loyd

Anthony Loyd is an English war correspondent, currently working for The Times, the author of an astonishing book about his experiences in the Bosnia and Chechnya wars. You can read a good review of that book in  the Books section of NY Times: an article from 2004, with a title (Hooked in Bloodshed) that fits well with the war atmosphere that Loyd caught in a unique way. Well, I gave you the title of the review, but the book's: it's named My War Gone By, I Miss It So. I will talk more about it, for now just a few words: it's about war depravity and about war adrenaline. Nobody is perfectly innocent in a war, nor the perpetrators, the victims neither. Once you are there, you become part of it, and you get addicted. This is in two sentences, the book deserves much more. I hope soon i will have the opportunity to read his second book, Another Bloody Love Letter.
