Jewish Book Week: ‘War and the Death of the News’

Tuesday 15 May at 7.30 pm

‘War and the Death of the News’ by Martin Bell.
Menorah, is delighted to be welcoming Martin Bell, a former BBC war correspondent and MP (‘The Man in the White Suit’). He served as a corporal in a colonial army, has been embedded with British forces, gone on missions with the Americans and crossed the Suez Canal with the Israelis. Having kept the company of soldiers, warlords, mercenaries and militias, he even attended one of the weddings of Idi Amin!
One of the outstanding journalists of our times, his book provides a moving, personal account of the travesties of war and issues an impassioned call to put the substance back into the news.
