What I Saw in Syria

A journalist gives readers a visceral, intimate sense of what it’s like to report on the Syrian war.

New York Times journalist Declan Walsh gives readers a visceral, intimate sense of what it’s like to report on the Syrian war. Some of that involves unveiling the reporting process itself, but mostly it’s about conveying the way that a place like Syria fully engages your five senses, in moments of repose as well as of action. What you see out the window as you drive between cities? What you hear – and feel – as you walk down the streets of Damascus of Aleppo? The smell of gunpowder; the pervasive sense of weariness or fear.
