Summary

What was it like to be caught in the firestorm that destroyed Pompeii? To have dinner with Attila the Hun? To watch the charge of the Light Brigade? To see the Titanic slide beneath the waves? John Carey’s best-selling Faber Book of Reportage draws its eyewitness account from memoirs, travel books and newspapers. This is history with the varnish removed.

‘A quite stunning collection. There are descriptions in this book so fresh that they sear themselves into the imagination.’ Jeremy Paxman
