Description

'No story is worth a life' is the journalist's rule - but the boys at the Frontline news agency broke rules for a living. Frontline went where other news organizations feared to tread, bringing back footage of war zones that seared itself across the screens of millions of TVs in the 1990s. But the price was high and many of Frontline's members paid it with their lives. The story of Frontline's rise and fall, and of its members on and off battlefields across the globe, is a brilliant account of the few men prepared to risk everything in pursuit of truth. Ultimately, it is the story of how journalism lost its nerve.
