A private war: Marie Colvin and other tales of heroes, scoundrels and renegades

Brenner, Marie, author

In February 2012, Marie Colvin illegally crossed into Syria on the back of a motorcycle. A veteran war correspondent known for her fearlessness, outspokenness and signature eye patch, she was defying a government decree preventing journalists from entering the country. Accompanied by French photographer Remi Ochlik, she was determined to report on the Syrian Civil War, adding to a long list of conflicts she had covered including Egypt, Chechnya, Kosovo and Libya. But she had no idea that the story she was looking for in Syria would be her last. In 'A Private War', veteran journalist Marie Brenner brilliantly re-creates the last days and hours of Colvin's life
