Alan Moorehead by Tom Pocock

Book Description

Alan Moorehead was lionised as a literary man of action: the most famous war correspondent of the Second World War; the award-winning and best-selling author of books that vividly combine adventure and history; the star travel-writer of the "New Yorker"; and a pioneer advocate of wildlife conservation. Drawing on Moorehead's diaries and correspondence, as well as interviews with his family and friends, Tom Pocock tells the story of a thrilling, but ultimately tragic, life.
