NATASHA’S STORY: WELCOME TO SARAJEVO


It begins in Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia, a city held captive by the Serbs, then in its fourth month of siege. Its three hundred thousand inhabitants are being whittled down by lack of food and a relentless bombardment as they witness the systematic destruction of their city and the ethnic cleansing of their country. The world watches too and does nothing.’


It is amidst this violence and destruction that war correspondent Michael Nicholson discovers two hundred children living, unprotected and isolated, in an orphanage on the outskirts of Sarajevo. Among them is Natasha.


A bond rapidly forms between the nine-year-old girl and Nicholson. Following the impulse of his heart and crossing the bounds of journalistic detachment, he makes the courageous decision which will alter Natasha’s life and his own; risking arrest and imprisonment, he forges her name into his passport and smuggles her back to England.


There, the little girl, who has only known suffering and deprivation, begins to experience the warmth and comfort of a family environment previously denied to her. Yet her courage will again be put to the test: the prospect of learning a new language and of assimilating an alien culture are doubly daunting for a child whose future remains uncertain.


Both a heartbreaking dispatch from a Balkan tragedy that has left 150,000 dead and the greatest movement of refugees since the Second World War, and an extraordinary human tale, Natasha’s Story is an eloquent and fascinating book for our times.

A MEASURE OF DANGER: MEMOIRS OF A BRITISH WAR CORRESPONDENT


Michael Nicholson has been one of Britain’s best, and best-known, foreign correspondents for over 25 years. In that time he has covered more wars than any other British or foreign reporter – from Vietnam to Angola, from Biafra to the Lebanon, from the Falklands to the Gulf. This book provides an insider’s account of wars and the people who fight them. The author describes the brave and the foolhardy, the leaders and the led, the victims and the victors – and the problems, moral as well as practical, of the men who report them. Updated to indicate his account of reporting the Gulf War, this book provides a testament to the futility of war.

A STATE OF WAR EXISTS: REPORTERS IN THE LINE OF FIRE


The worst moment in a war was my fear I would not be sent to it. So wrote the young Mike Nicholson, a reporter whose astonishing career has covered eighteen major conflicts. Published to coincide with the thirtieth anniversary of the Falklands War a conflict Nicholson famously covered for ITN A State of War Exists sees the veteran journalist pondering what made him want to risk life and limb, travelling to the most dangerous parts of the world at the most dangerous times over two hundred journalists have been killed in the last three years alone. Was it machismo or masochism that encouraged him to so compulsively and repeatedly to risk his life? Probably, he concludes, it was both. This remarkable book looks at the history of war reporting through a century and a half of conflict journalism from the Crimea to the Kevlar wearing, technology dependent hacks of today, trying desperately to fill the twenty-four hour rolling news vacuum. Along the way, Nicholson introduces us to the greats of his trade and looks at what made them do what they did and what sets them apart from the rest, including William Howard Russell, Frederic Villiers, Martha Gellhorn, Henry Wood Nevison, James Cameron, Claire Hollingworth and Michael Herr.
