Paul has worked in some of the most dangerous places in the world‚ and nearly lost his life doing so. Last year he made headlines when he was seriously injured in a rocket attack in Syria that killed his friend and colleague, Marie Colvin.
His new book, Under The Wire: Marie Colvin’s Final Assignment recounts that experience, and in this interview he tells us how writing the book helped him come to terms with the terrible events in Syria.
