After explicitly depicting the horrors of war in War Porn and commenting on its absurdity in hello camel, Christoph Bangert now reflects in the third and last volume of this series on his own role as a journalist covering conflict. Rumors of War is a personal diary of a former war photographer who admits that he misses war and now has to find a way to cope with peace. Bangert describes his inner conflict between the overwhelming, but also selfishly driven feeling of doing something meaningful, which he longs to experience over and over again, and the knowledge of the worries of his family and friends, which he forces to go through an emotional hell. What he experienced will accompany him throughout his entire life. But one thing is certain: he will never go to war again.
