As I'm a big fan of Mr Fisk's later work I decided to put in the time to read his earlier account of the atrocious Lebanese civil war, and it was certainly time well spent. Mr Fisk does an admirable job providing both objective detail and a heartfelt interpretation of the tragic insanity of the situation. It should be a must read for aspiring foreign correspondents.
