Interesting but a difficult read..

5 out of 5 stars

I bought this book after listening to book of the week on Radio 4 in 2007 and its taken me this long as it is not an easy book to review.

Recent occurences where the book has been torn apart by reporters claiming the book to be inaccurate in terms of time frame and events has prompted me to offer my own 2p. I’m not going to say that it is okay if only most of the facts are correct and not going to dwell on the fact that he is a human being and not a professional writer but the book left me with a desire to learn much more about the region and I now know about the war in other parts of the world than I did initially and anyone that has been directly or indirectly affected by the carnage caused by wars will know where he is coming from.

To me that means that the book fulfilled it’s purpose. Read it
