Description
A classical scholar and a war correspondent in Spain in April 1937, George Steer remained in the city of Guernica after it was destroyed and found evidence of German bombs; his dispatch was one of the most controversial of the conflict, forcing the world to acknowledge that the Nazis were aiding Franco in the Spanish Civil War, and became front-page news in London and New York. Steer also reported on Italian atrocities in Ethiopia and the Russian invasion of Finland, and when World War II broke out, he joined the British Army and led propaganda and psychological warfare efforts in Africa and Asia. Nicholas Rankin gives us the extraordinary life of this brilliant and fearless journalist.

"Splendidly researched, deeply moving and compellingly readable.... Rankin is a first-rate historian, equipped with Steer's own priceless gift for illuminating great events with unforgettable detail."Literary Review
