Born to a distinguished military family, Loyd longed to experience war from the front line. After serving in the Gulf War he went to Bosnia as a war correspondent. There he became enmeshed in one of the most callous clashes on European soil. Addicted to the adrenaline of combat, when he returned home he found no more peace than in battle. And so began a longstanding battle against drug abuse. These harrowing accounts from the trenches show humanity at its worst and best. This is an uncompromising look at the terrifyingly seductive power of war.
