Journalist Andrew Fyall reported from every corner of the globe during the 1960s and '70s. As a foreign correspondent for the Daily Express, he travelled to more than seventy countries. From the Cuban missile crisis, when the world held its breath and nuclear war seemed inevitable, to the emergence of Martin Luther King and his crusade against racial segregation, he was there, providing first-hand eyewitness accounts Express readers had come to expect. Whether hunting for Nazi fugitives, 'sparring' with Mohammed Ali, or dealing with show business legends such as The Beatles, James Cagney, Lauren Bacall, and Katherine Hepburn, for Expressmen and women, there were no boundaries. ""First in, last out"" was the mantra of the foreign correspondent. This is the story of one of them and a fascinating and vibrant account of how frontline journalism used to be, when hot metal and hot tempers ran Fleet Street, and covering the story meant living the story.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Andrew FyallPublisher: Austin MacauleyPublished: 07/31/2019ISBN: 9781528926751Pages: 316Weight: 0.98lbsSize: 9.21h x 6.14w x 0.66d
