Pulitzer Prize winner Lynsey Addario has risked her life to document the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq; and civil wars and humanitarian crises in Libya, South Sudan, and Syria. Some of her most striking images are now in a new book called “Of Love and War.” She tells us remarkable stories from the field, how she was kidnapped in Libya, why journalists are in more danger now.
