And yet again, another book that taught me not to whine and write about how the trip was uncomfortable, the food was bad, the mosquitoes were huge, the leeches were everywhere, etc etc These trivialities don t deserve to be mentioned in books But if you are staring at the barrel of a gun pointed in your direction by a jittery boy no older than 8 years old in an improvised checkpoint in the middle of night, then that s something to write about. Great book The difference between Kapuscincki and the average person could be summed up in an anecdote he relates in this book One evening he was drinking heavily, as usual in a bar in some Third World backwater when a wild eyed man barges in and starts shouting, They re killing anyone who goes down that road, stay away I d stay put, might even crawl under the table, Kapuscinski finishes his drink and ventures down the road to see what s happening Brave man, wonderful writer. Not a perfect book of reportage but near as dammit The first Kapuscinski book I ve read and won t be the last Extraordinarily vivid and lucid writing Reminded me a little of Graham Greene in the flatness of tone and matter of fact descriptions of the grim, gruesome, and picaresque, but it s what you want from a war journalist A Hunter S Thompson withrestraint and fewer drugs Loved it. p.145

happened, I would inevitable live in a state of ever greater estrangement from itThrough a remarkable paradox, my life adventure, instead of opening up a new world for me, had the effect rather of brining me back to the old one, and the world I had been looking for disintegrated in my grasp If Travels With Herodotus was Kapuscinski s ode to his passion of travel, if Shadow of the Sun was his

characters, Imperium his ode to the era of the Second World, Another Day of Life his ode to the ravages of war, the Other as his ode to philosophy, then the Soccer War seems to be his ode to the feelings of joy and despair in the third world Not only does Kapuscinski explore his own feelings in such situations as revolutions and coups, he explores his feelings in the context of the larger, anduniversal feelings of despair from which society often finds itself reeling This book is the work of genius It was my good fortune that somebody in my book club chose this little gem to read I hadn t heard of Kapu ci ski before, and perhaps I never would have Even if I did, I doubt I would have read anything by him A Polish journalist Whenever I try to explain to friends what is so enjoyable about this book, my mind jumps to the writing Kapu ci ski is just a damned good writer He is a master of brevity He can conjure a scene, a town, a whole country, with just a few paragraphs He can summon up It was my good fortune that somebody in my book club chose this little gem to read I hadn t heard of Kapu ci ski before, and perhaps I never would have Even if I did, I doubt I would have read anything by him A Polish journalist Whenever I try to explain to friends what is so enjoyable about this book, my mind jumps to the writing Kapu ci ski is just a damned good writer He is a master of brevity He can conjure a scene, a town, a whole country, with just a few paragraphs He can summon up a quirky personality or a unique character with a few lines of dialogue.And what a character he is himself If he is not guilty of romanticizing his own life and I doubt he is , Kapu ci ski is a reckless sonuvabitch He seems to have a kind of Freudian death urge He gets himself into one dangerous situation after another, diving headfirst into wars, rebellions, slums, ghettos, and deserts He gets shot at by militants, sick with exotic diseases, imprisoned in a Third World jail, and stung by scorpions So, unlike many if not most fancy prose stylists, Kapu ci ski s life was interesting in itself.The only thing lacking from Kapu ci ski s writing was the big picture He has his eyes close to the ground, and is brilliant at conveying what it was like to be in the midst of these historic situations Third World upheavals, mostly Yet he seldom analyzes the economic and political forces at play he doesn t supplement his field mouse s perspectives with a bird s eye view It s a pity, really, as I m sure somebody as perspicacious as Kapu ci ski would have some worthwhile insights on the broader scale.This, however, is only a mild complaint and Kapu ci ski s prose is lovely enough to make up for any lapses in content In short, I m tremendously impressed with both the man and his work

Somali war and famine, parliamentary debate on a child support bill in Tanganyika now Tanzania Plus Israel Palestine, Cyprus, and the eponymous Soccer War between Honduras and El Salvador, which kicked off because of soccer tensions and lasted one hundred hours, left 6,000 dead, and was missed by the world media who were focused on the moon landing.His best anecdotes are about roadblocks in Nigeria, a Honduran soldier who risks his life to strip boots from the dead for his barefoot family, witnessing an execution on television, being asked to start a socialist party in the Congo, trying to convince Ghanians that Poland, albeit a country full of white people, was the colonized and not the colonizer, and being held prisoner in Burundi and being saved by a Congolese who got a message to the U.N Ben Bella s coup paranoia view spoiler He no longer trusted anyone People were either plotting or carrying out sabotage One day he introduced Boumedienne to an Egyptian journalist with the words, This is the man who is preparing the conspiracy against me And he asked How are the intrigues coming along Quite well, thank you, Boumedienne replied hide spoiler Socialism in the Congo view spoiler Our first conversation They introduced themselves Socialists from Kasai Nice to meet you.After a few pleasantries one of them came right out with it We need money What for asked Jarda Boucek, my Czech friend We want socialism to triumph in Kasai And for that, we must buy off the leaders of our province They were young, and you must make allowances for youth So Jarda said that socialism does not triumph by means of money He added something about the masses The masses first, that s how Jarda put it.The socialists sat there, downcast For them, the masses were not so important Had we ever seen the millions marching here The millions are passive, directionless, diffuse All the action takes place among the leaders Five hundred names, maximum And it s exactly those names that you have to buy Once you ve bought a few, you can go ahead and set up a government, and the ones who put up the money determine the kind of government it will be That s how the governments of Chombego, Kalonji and Bolikango were started There are many possibilities, many untapped reserves I quickly calculated that I had 1,000 dollars left I wondered if I could buy myself a republic One with a real army, a government and a national anthem I might not get much of a republic for my money A thousand dollars is not a great sum I would not be in the same league as Washington or London or Brussels No I had to forget about it So did my friends hide spoiler Stumbling upon a coup view spoiler It was in Dahomey that I came across a coup by sheer accident.As I was driving into Cotonou, which constitutes half the capital of Dahomey the other half, called Port Novo, is thirty kilometres down the road , I passed a car being driven by the AFP correspondent, Jacques Lamoureux, who started shouting at me Stop Pull over There s a revolution here Lamoureux was visibly elated, because Cotonou is a pretty little town but a boring one and its sole real attraction is the revolution, which occurs only once every few months.This time the president of the republic, Sourou Migan Apithy, was locked in a struggle with Justin Ahomadegbe, the vice president and head of the government Their dispute had started with an argument over which one of them had the right to appoint a judge to the Supreme Court Each wanted to fill the position, as each had a large family among whom various positions continually had to be distributed.During the course of the military takeover that I was about to witness, I did not see a single armed soldier This distinguished the present coup from that of October 1963, when the army used weapons namely, the one mortar in the possession of the Dahomeyan army When Soglo arrested Hubert Maga, the members of the cabinet, unsure about what was happening, barricaded themselves in a small building near the main square Soglo himself then set up the mortar in front of the building he was the only one in the army who knew how to operate it and announced through a megaphone that if the cabinet did not resign by four in the afternoon, he would begin firing on the building The cabinet decided unanimously to resign, which it communicated to Soglo through the window, and thus ended the political crisis of October 1963 hide spoiler Predicting a war view spoiler Luis Suarez said there was going to be a war, and I believed whatever Luis said We were staying together in Mexico Luis was giving me a lesson in Latin America what it is and how to understand it He could foresee many events In his time he had predicted the fall of Goulart in Brazil, the fall of Bosch in the Dominican Republic and of Jimenez in Venezuela Long before the return of Per n he believed that the old caudillo would again become president of Argentina he foretold the sudden death of the Haitian dictator Fran ois Duvalier at a time when everybody said Papa Doc had many years left Luis knew how to pick his way through Latin politics, in which amateurs like me got bogged down and blundered helplessly with each step.This time Luis announced his belief that there would be a war after putting down the newspaper in which he had read a report on the soccer match between the Honduran and Salvadoran national teams The two countries were playing for the right to take part in the 1970 World Cup in Mexico.The first match was held on Sunday 8 June 1969, in the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa.Nobody in the world paid any attention hide spoiler Soccer and politics view spoiler Luis read about all of this in the newspaper and said that there was going to be a war He had been a reporter for a long time and he knew his beat.In Latin America, he said, the border between soccer and politics is vague There is a long list of governments that have fallen or been overthrown after the defeat of the national team Players on the losing team are denounced in the press as traitors When Brazil won the World Cup in Mexico, an exiled Brazilian colleague of mine was heartbroken The military right wing, he said, can be assured of at least fiveyears of peaceful rule On the way to the title, Brazil beat England In an article with the headline Jesus Defends Brazil , the Rio de Janeiro paper Jornal dos Sportes explained the victory thus Whenever the ball flew towards our goal and a score seemed inevitable, Jesus reached his foot out of the clouds and cleared the ball Drawings accompanied the article, illustrating the supernatural intervention hide spoiler Canadian journalism and diplomacy in Latin America view spoiler The major advised us to return to Tegucigalpa, because advancing might mean getting killed without even knowing who had done it As if that mattered, I thought But the television cameramen said they had to push forward, to the front line, to film soldiers in action, firing, dying Gregor Straub of NBC said he had to have a close up of a soldier s face dripping sweat Rodolfo Carillo of CBS said he had to catch a despondent commander sitting under a bush and weeping because he had lost his whole unit A French cameraman wanted a panorama shot with a Salvadoran unit charging a Honduran unit from one side, or vice versa Somebody else wanted to capture the image of a soldier carrying his dead comrade The radio reporters sided with the cameramen One wanted to record the cries of a casualty summoning help, growing weaker and weaker, until he breathed his last breath Charles Meadows of Radio Canada wanted the voice of a soldier cursing war amid a hellish racket of gunfire Naotake Mochida of Radio Japan wanted the bark of an officer shouting to his commander over the roar of artillery using a Japanese field telephone.The announcer was reading a string of communiqu s from the front Next we heard that a wide range of governments, the countries of Latin America, along with many from Europe and Asia, wanted to bring the war between Honduras and El Salvador to an end, and had already issued statements about it The African countries were expected to take a stand presently Communiqu s from Australia and Oceania were also expected China was silent, which was provoking interest, and so, too, was Canada The Canadian reticence could be explained by the fact that a Canadian correspondent, Charles Meadows, was at the front and his situation might be complicated or madedangerous by a statement now hide spoiler A
