    A classical scholar, George Steer (1909-1944) was to become a legendary war correspondent: he reported the Italian invasion of Ethiopia, the Russian invasion of Finland and single-handedly exposed the truth behind Nazi involvement in the bombing of Guernica in 1937. In 1940 he joined the British Army and pioneered front-line psychological operations in Africa and Asia. This highly acclaimed biography revisits Steer's restless life as 'scriptor et miles', writer and soldier.
