Pressestimmen"* 'For decades, television has been looking for another, more modern M.A.S.H., the comedy series set in an American army field hospital that drew the sting from death and war. Maybe this book is it. In these True Stories from a War Zone, it's the early 1990s and three young, good-looking civilians working for the UN and the Red Cross first meet in Cambodia... These three voices from the world's front line are personal, these three characters from global ground zero are fallible; their youth and idealism, faults and failures, and triumphs and tears, all work to humanise recent history and bring it home for a reckoning' - The Times * '...vividly told, this book is all the more engaging because its perspective is personal before it is political' - Daily Mail"
