This is the cover of My War Gone By, I Miss It So by Anthony Loyd (great book)

Who is the grandson of the Legendary warrior Adrian Carton de Wiart who supposedly amputated his own hand so that he could stay in the battle.

I highly highly recommend the book My War Gone By, I Miss it So. It's about a war photog/journalist that is addicted to war and then heroin in the trips he takes back home. Anyone who enjoys this sub would love it.

A good chunk of My War Gone By, I Miss It So is the memoirs of a journalist who was in Bosnia during the civil war. The book as a whole has some parts which aren't in Bosnia, and at times it's a fairly personal book more about the writer's problems than about the war, but it sounds like you'd be interested in reading the parts which are set in Bosnia.

I recently read "My War Gone By, I Miss It So.", which is a book written by a war journalist/photographer who was on the ground in Bosnia-Herzegovina and details some of the most insane shit nationalism can do to people. I highly suggest reading it, it's damn good read.

Roll Me Over: An Infantryman's WW2 by Raymond Gantter. Easily one of the best personal accounts I have read about the war in Europe.

My War Gone By, I Miss It So by Anthony Loyd Another personal account but of the war in Bosnia.

I also recommend reading My War Gone By, I Miss It So, a freelance war photographer's written account of the Bosnian war. If there was ever a war book that could give you vicarious trauma, this is it. My circle of friends has passed it around to interested people we've met and everyone who read it got nightmares at some point from evocatively written it is.

Actually, quite a lot, especially in Africa. The most graphic and horrifying happened with Kofi Annan on the phone telling UN forces not to save Bosnian children in a grade school. While UN forces did not do the rapes, the UN's highest authority allowed it to happen. Excellent read.
