    You are there.This is a reporter's personal account of what he experienced, "a first draft of history" as the expression goes. I give it five stars, not for its scholarship or its comprehensiveness--it is neither scholarly nor complete--but for its captivating sheer vividness and passion.Vulliamy was one of a small cadre of Western jounalists who tried to make sense of the Bosnian catastrophe for the outside world. Others also went on to write fine books: Chuck Sudetic, Misha Glenny, and Tim Jud [...]

    I have gotta get this out. I skimmed the book and found Ed Vulliamy's account very unsatisfactory. First of all the man is exploiting the plight of a Whole people (Bosnian muslims) for his own gains it seems as the book more resembles a criminal fiction to enjoy with a box of chocolates in front of an open fire than a sober account of the dissaster that overtook the Bosnian muslims. Secondly, I must object to the clearly biased view of Mr. Vulliamy that the Bosnian seculars are clearly favored a [...]

    Notyvole. Může se u knížek na takovýhle téma psát že byly výborný? Už dlouho se mi nestalo že bych si musela dávat přestávky ve čtení protože mi bylo z obsahu fyzicky zle, a to nejsem stran knížek na podobný témata žádný ořezávátko. Tohle mě ale vzalo víc než jiný, možná proto, že se to stalo vlastně kousek odsud a ne tak dávno. Jaktože se o tom dneska skoro neví?Hodně se mi líbil i styl pana autora (nebo možná českýho překladatele, četla jsem v př [...]

    A powerful account of the Bosnian war, up to approximately the end of 1993. Vulliamy provides a vivid account of the terrible human cost of the sordid struggle to 'carve up' Bosnia. It is impossible not to share his outrage, both at the scale and breadth of the atrocities carried out, and at the inexcusable failure of the international community to prevent or address them. A very small quibble: so many typos! This book deserved much better editing.

    I really, really wish I had read this book prior to my deployment to Bosnia in 1995. It was very difficult to read, but gives an excellent narrative of the savage destruction endured by the Bosnian population during the early years of the war. I hope the world never stands by again while such atrocities are being committed against a civilian population.

    I read a copy of this largely at the library back during the Impeachment Proceedings; it was a heady time of salsa bagels and diet pepsi with lemon. I actually had to insert the fruit. That appears to be alifetime ago. I no longer drink soft drinks; there are now no bagel spots in this backwater and my life tumbled before moving onward. This book both humbled and haunted.

    A book that documents the atrocities from all parties in this tragic war. Lots of personal stories of suffering set into a background that attempts to explain the cultural and political genesis of the Bosnian conflict.

    There are no words! My heart aches for the people; the waste, the loss, the senselessness of the whole thing.

    Ed Vulliamy remains objective always, but never neutral: he knows the horror of what he's reporting. I loved this book.

    First hand narrative of the ethnic cleansing by journalists. Delved into the political intervention and the tragedy of Bosnian War.
