Cohen has written ‘Hearts Grown Brutal: Sagas of Sarajevo’, an account of the wars of Yugoslavia’s destruction, and ‘Soldiers and Slaves: American POWs Trapped by the Nazis’ Final Gamble’. He has also co-written a biography of Gen. H. Norman Schwarzkopf, ‘In the Eye of the Storm’. His family memoir, ‘The Girl From Human Street: Ghosts of Memory in a Jewish Family’, was published in January 2015. Raised in South Africa and England, he is a naturalized U.S. citizen.
