Hesh Kestin was for two decades a foreign correspondent, reporting from Europe, the Middle East, and Africa on war, international security, terrorism, arms dealing, espionage, and often equally shadowy global business. Formerly a London-based European correspondent for Forbes, he is an eighteen-year veteran of the Israel Defense Forces.
