An award-winning journalist offers a reporter's-eye view of the Middle East conflict, from Black September to the Yom Kippur War to events of the present day. Holed up within the Inter Continental Hotel and caught inside the crossfire, he managed to get the story out. In 1970, when the Jordanian civil war known as Black September began, U. P. I. correspondent Wilborn Hampton was sent to report on unfolding events. Now the acclaimed author of KENNEDY ASSASSINATED! , MELTDOWN, and SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, relays his on-the-spot experiences covering two pivotal wars, while providing readers a clear, balanced overview of the issues that have plagued the Middle East for decades and continue to this day. Three years later, dispatched to Israel to cover the Yom Kippur War, the reporter took it on himself to drive towards the front lines.
