Paul Conroy has written a cracking book about the death of War Correspondent Marie Colvin. A great read and although we SOMETIMES disparage journalists on RUM RATION, this is the story of a very brave woman. Well worth having a go for a copy of the book. There are 4 copies up for grabs and as ever all you have to do is answer the easy questions correctly to be in with a shout. The competition can be entered here at Survey Monkey.

The book has been reviewed by old_fat_and_hairy and this can be found here. Under the Wire.



This competition will run until Sunday 7th July



Still running is the competition for SOME UNHOLY WAR which can be found herefor the next week. Try this one also.

I am surprised nobody has picked me up for the wrong book in the thread title! Still, hasn't stopped the entries.
