The book draws on detailed primary and secondary material in English and Bosnian! as well as extensive interviews with international correspondents who covered events in Sarajevo from within siege lines. It also includes hitherto unpublished images taken by the co-author and award-winning photojournalist!

Foreign correspondents brought the horror of the siege of Sarajevo to the world. In this deftly written volume, Kenneth Morrison and Paul Lowe tell the story of how they did it, through an examination of the daily life of reporters, discussion of the city's broadcast infrastructure and key critical developments that affected their work. This masterfully documented book makes use of extensive interviews with foreign reporters, local translators, stringers, fixers, and engineers, as well as archival research conducted over many years. In an era of fake news and 'alternative facts', it is essential reading for media practitioners who want to understand this critical era of journalism and will be equally vital for both scholars of the region and general readers interested in the longest siege in modern history.
