This chapter focuses on how the author was appointed the paper's East European bureau chief. However, the bureau itself was located in Belgrade in Yugoslavia, from which the author had escaped. Since he feared that he may never get another offer to become a foreign correspondent, he accepted the position. The chapter then looks at the author's meeting with Turkish leader Rauf Denktash. The author was in Cyprus after pro-Greek junta officers staged a coup against the president, Archbishop Makarios III. For nearly a week, there were intercommunal massacres throughout the island, and the ethnic Turks on the island were publicly clamoring for Turkey to protect them. Denktash told the author that he had asked Turkey to intervene militarily to protect the Turkish minority on the island. Later, the author got caught in a Turkish fire during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus.

Keywords:   East European bureau chief, Yugoslavia, foreign correspondent, Rauf Denktash, Cyprus, Archbishop Makarios III, Turkish minority, Turkey, Turkish invasion, Washington Post
