Anthony William Vivian Loyd (born 12 September 1966) is an English journalist, a noted war correspondent.[1]

Author[edit]

My War Gone By, I Miss It So, is a noted book based on his experiences in Bosnia and Chechnya. The memoir is a depiction of the depravity of war and adrenalin addiction Loyd experienced covering the violent dissolution of Yugloslavia in the mid-1990s. In the book Loyd staggers chapters about war in Bosnia, Chechnya, and boredom tinged with heroin addiction in London.

He published a second volume of autobiography, Another Bloody Love Letter, in 2007. It covered his experiences in the former Yugoslavia, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq.
