A Pulitzer-nominated national security correspondent and a specialist in behavior-change communications, Sid Balman has covered wars in the Persian Gulf, Somalia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kosovo; and travelled extensively with two American presidents and four secretaries of state on overseas diplomatic missions.
“Seventh Flag’s rapid paced narrative takes readers from the football fields of West Texas to the battlefields of the Middle East; from Mexican shootouts to an Ashram in India. A former war correspondent, Balman’s lively prose has his audience inside a tank’s turret and with the media cluster in the rear of the Secretary of State’s aircraft. The book entertains and enlightens!”
— US Ambassador James Bishop (Ret.)
