It is the summer of 1939 in England when soldiers start digging trenches in a local park. Suddenly, seven-year-old John Adams is forced to face a new reality. He and his school are abruptly evacuated to an unknown destination. Two days later, war is declared. As the sky lights up with searchlights and German bombing raids increase, Adams' natural instincts to dig for the real story kick in-beginning what would eventually become a remark-able journey as a journalist.

By fourteen, Adams had published his ¿rst article in a major national paper, Britain's Daily Mirror. At nineteen, he was ¿ghting in the Korean War. He became a military reporter for London's Daily Telegraph and battled against communist propaganda during the Cold War as a correspondent and news director of Radio Free Europe. He o¿ers an unforgettable glimpse into the fascinating world of news , including insights into what it was like to interact with such disparate public ¿gures as the Duke of Wellington, Otto von Habsburg, Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite.

In the Trenches explores one man's experiences, perspectives, and memories as he witnesses extraordinary times in history through the ever-curious eyes of a reporter.

"Adams saw it all with his own eyes, heard it with his own ears. He lived it."
-Andrew Alexander, former Ombudsman, the Washington Post, and Washington bureau chief, Cox Newspapers
