The war that has riven Bosnia-Herzegovina is the most ferocious carnage to blight Europe since the fall of the Third Reich. It has shocked, challenged, but ultimately baffled the world. This account of the war boils down the labyrinth of violence to a horribly simple story: the humiliation, decimation and betrayal of the Bosnian Muslims by two rival Balkan powers, and then by the "international community".;This book is an anecdotal, close-range narrative of Vulliamy's discovery of the infamous Serbian camps, of refugees walking the mountain roads to nowhere, and of the tortuous siege of Sarajevo, once a great European capital.;The author, in 1992, won the following awards for his coverage of the war: Granada TVs Foreign Correspondent of the Year, British Press Awards International Reporter of the Year and the Amnesty International Award for Human Rights Journalism.
