War Reporting for Cowards by Chris Ayres
Chris Ayres had the cushy job of covering Hollywood for the London Times. Against his better judgment, his editor talks him into becoming an embedded reporter during the American invasion of Iraq. In War Reporting for Cowards, Ayres confidently and humorously proclaims his cowardice and details his preparations for his 9-day experience with the U.S. Marines. Unsure what gear to bring, he ends up with a bright yellow tent with a red cross on it; perfect camouflauge for the desert. While riding with the Marines, he finds them to be something other than he expected. War Reporting for Cowards has received positive reviews with BookPage saying, "Ayres' book is exciting, revealing and very, very, funny. Ayres knows his own limitations and never tries to paint his adventure as anything other than it is: a harrowing yet empowering journey for a young man learning he has more about him than he thinks."
