Sidetracks: Dispatches Review

1 09 2008

Dispatches isn’t so much a travelogue or memoirs of a journalist as it is a slice of human reality in wartime. Herr hangs out with the troops in damp bunkers, gets stoned with the exhausted and freaked out journalists and gives the ordinary soldiers in the field a voice as never before. In a world where history concerns itself with the deeds and thoughts of the generals, presidents and kings, Dispatches takes us into the realm of real history, enacted by the young men who were made to lay their lives, hearts and sanity on the line.
