In the Hot Zone: One Man, One Year, Twenty Wars

In the Hot Zone: One Man, One Year, Twenty Wars - Kevin Sites Another 299 iBooks blue plate special, although sites is apparently aware of dollar for word count reviwers such as me, padding his book with blank pages between every dispatch. So maybe we actually only get 300 pages? Oh well, still a penny a page. And you get exactly what is described one year, twenty disaster zones, plenty of human suffering delved in bite sized chunks

Sites is the guy who videoed the falluja/marines mosque incident. I almost believe his self-recriminations....

In a madhouse world, twenty war zones with plenty of landmine victims, paramilitaries, a few close brushes (not many). Is sites a merchant of human misery? An idealist to journalism's best values? Or just a decent writer. I dunno. Anyway... Next....
