“Eric’s journey in his father’s footsteps is a gripping journey of the self. Ghosts of War echoes with what strong journalism used to bring us: uncensored truth.” – Tim Page, acclaimed Vietnam War photographer, filmmaker, and author

In the 1960s, few living journalists were more famous than the Toronto Star’s Robert Reguly, who landed a series of international scoops and was right there in the Ambassador Hotel kitchen when Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated.

But no story loomed larger in Reguly’s life, or in the world’s consciousness, than the war in Vietnam, which he covered from startlingly close range in 1967.

Vietnam was the assignment of his lifetime and, in many respects, Robert’s undoing. It changed him and haunted him, as well as his family, for the rest of their lives. Half a century later, Robert’s son, Eric Reguly, himself an esteemed foreign correspondent, retraces his late father’s footsteps through Vietnam’s combat zones in an impassioned quest to better understand the complicated and distant man who raised him and guided him into journalism.

Ghosts of War is a gripping, thoughtful book about two very different generations of war, journalism, and manhood.


ERIC REGULY’s career in journalism has included posts in New York, London, Calgary, Toronto, and now Rome, where he is the European Bureau Chief for The Globe and Mail. His work has earned him the Hyman Solomon Award for Excellence in Public Policy Journalism, a National Newspaper Award for business writing, a National Magazine Award and two golds from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers.
