Times subscribers joined us for an evening with the award-winning Times war reporter Anthony Loyd in conversation with The Times deputy editor, Emma Tucker.
Anthony Loyd has reported from every major conflict zone including Afghanistan, Iraq and Sierra Leone, as well as Chechnya and Bosnia. In the midst of reporting from Syria in 2014 he was kidnapped and shot before escaping.
His most recent mission has been reporting from Mosul witnessing the long and cataclysmic battle to evict Islamic State from Iraq. Hear first-hand the realities of life reporting on the front line and how Anthony prepares before he heads off on his next assignment.
Anthony is the most experienced British war correspondent of his generation, and one of the longest-serving journalists at The Times. He is also the foreign desk’s most highly awarded reporter, having won 15 major press awards.
His memoir My War Gone By, I Miss It So is now being made into a film starring Tom Hardy as Anthony.
