A classic memoir by one of the great British journalists of the twentieth century, a man who earned universal respect not only for his courage in reporting from dangerous places, but for his candour and independence. Point of Departure features Cameron's eyewitness accounts of the atom bomb tests at Bikini atoll, the Chinese invasion of Tibet and the war in Korea, and vivid evocations of his encounters with Mao Tse-tung and Winston Churchill.

Point Of Departure
James Cameron was a foreign correspondent in the 1960s and the book tells all about his time and work abroad. Highly recommend.
