Description

In one year as a journalist Webb Miller covered thirty-three murders and three hangings in Chicago, was kidnapped by an American tycoon and covered the Western Front. Later he broke news of the First World War armistice, witnessed a guillotine execution, befriended Mussolini, interviewed Hitler, rode a Zeppelin across the Atlantic, reported from the front line in the Spanish Civil War and Italy's invasion of Abyssinia and accompanied Gandhi on the Great Salt March. First published in 1935, I Found No Peace is a forgotten classic, written with great poignancy and elan and heavily influenced by Miller's hero Henry David Thoreau. Part-history, part-memoir this is one of the most evocative and close-to-the-action accounts ever written about the modern world's defining era.
