9780099590798: Rebels: My Life Behind Enemy Lines with Warlords, Fanatics and Not-so-Friendly Fire

A 21st century take on Dispatches, award-winning VICE News journalist Aris Roussinos tells the real stories behind life in a rebel army

The hidden truth about war is how much fun it is. However they begin, whatever their aims, wars are fought by young men. They fight in burned-out buildings and shelter under thorn trees. They eat their meager rations, and starve for days cut off from supply lines. They smoke 40 cigarettes a day and ride to war stoned, listening to Craig David. But the bombs and bullets are terrifyingly real, and the guys they’re killing aren’t always faceless enemies: sometimes they’re friends. For the last three years, award-winning journalist Aris Roussinos embedded himself with rebel groups across the world. Part travelogue from the world’s most dangerous hotspots, part eyewitness testimony to recent, bloody history, this is one man’s uncensored, unflinching account of living with the enemy.

About the Author:

Aris Roussinos is an award-winning journalist who works for VICE. He has covered the Tunisian and Bahraini revolutions, the Japanese tsunami and nuclear crisis, the Libyan war, Greek riots, the coup in Egypt, the conflict in Syria, and the wars in South Kordofan and Blue Nile, Sudan.

Review:

"A gritty, fast-paced account of the (sometimes tragic) determination and idealism of young men."  —New Statesman

"Gripping. . . . It’s got a youthful honesty and a lack of pomposity . . . he’s got a fine news sense . . . there’s a talent here."  —Evening Standard

"His experiences are immersive and his account is uncensored and unflinching. . . . Rebels provides an alternative insight and analysis of the rebel uprising, documenting its journey from hope to hopelessness in an accessible and human way while shedding light on the motives of a young war journalist."  —Big Issue in the North
