Times members joined us for a Q&A with The Times war correspondent Anthony Loyd to celebrate the reissue of his classic book on war reporting, My War Gone By, I Miss It So.
Anthony Loyd is an award-winning foreign correspondent who has reported from numerous conflict zones including the Balkans, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya, Iraq and Chechnya. A former infantry officer, he left the British army after the First Gulf War and went to live in Bosnia, where he started reporting for The Times. He wrote about his experiences there in My War Gone By, I Miss It So. At the time, Martin Bell commented in the Times that the book 'deserves a place alongside George Orwell, James Cameron and Nicholas Tomalin’. More recently, in 2014, he made headlines when he was kidnapped, shot and then escaped while reporting in Syria.
