Alan Moorehead was lionized as the literary man of action: the most celebrated war correspondent of World War II; author of award-winning books; star travel-writer of The New Yorker'; pioneer publicist of wildlife conservation. Then, at the height of his success, his writing suddenly stopped and when, 17 years later, his death was announced, he seemed a heroic figure from the past.
