5.0 out of 5 stars A FABULOUS BOOK! 28 Jun 2009
By BellZ - Published on
Rosie Malek-Yonan's historical novel, The Crimson Field, has become a permanent bookmark as the most relevant literary work by an Assyrian author. Ms. Malek-Yonan has singularly placed the Assyrian Genocide under a giant spotlight. The Crimson Field is a landmark achievement for the Assyrian nation in that it has pulled the Assyrian identity out of obscurity and into the light. A nation long thought to be forgotten has comes to life through this masterful depiction of human violence and kindness. It is truth in its absolute form. After the author has taken you on a journey of grief and unimaginable loss, the reader is finally led to walk away with a clear message of optimism. I highly recommend this book not because I am an Assyrian, but mostly because The Crimson Field transcends race, nationality and color. It is about humanity, courage, love, determination and above all hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Crimson Field 28 Jun 2009
By V. Raikany - Published on
The Crimson Field is the most virtuous testimony of the 1914-1918 Assyrian Genocide. I have long searched for literature that would act as a bridge and connect me to the past. I spent many years of my life researching Assyrian history and speaking to Assyrian writers, poets and Politicians about the Genocide.

As I read the historical and literary epic novel, I could not get myself to put the book down. There were moments where I could not stop crying, and moments where my heart was filled with joy and pride for the Assyrian people. When I finished the book, I felt a rebirth of every Assyrian victim in the massacres within me. The Crimson Field incited me to create an entire music piece in a humble attempt to voice the long silent and hidden truth exposed today, on its pages.

The courage presented by author Rosie Malek-Yonan; in writing this book is the same courage displayed by the victims, when they were massacred. Today, she is their voice. She utters the truth; without any fear or justification. Through the Crimson Field, The massacres committed against the Assyrian Nation are being recognized by the world. I encourage everyone to stand by Rosie Malek-Yonan and hold The Crimson Field close to his/her heart as testimony to the massacres, in hope that the voices of the victims will be heard and the Assyrian land and people, protected. I also testify that all of the historic events delivered in this masterpiece have actually occurred and are absolutely genuine.

From a global perspective, The Crimson Field is also a great reference for those interested in understanding the roots of radical Islamic terrorism, the world is facing today. The Crimson Field demonstrates the acts of pure evil in which the United States faced; through the 911 attacks. Thus, those who committed the Assyrian Genocides carry the same banner as those who committed the 911 attacks. The Crimson Field truthfully displays the motives and missions of those who seek to destroy and kill anyone that does not follow their radical path.

The Crimson Field is a beam of light striking through a tunnel of bloodshed, rape and abuse of a Nation that was once; the cradle of civilization. The Crimson Field is a piercing and indisputable voice of those who can no longer speak for their human rights and those who are, until this day, afraid to ask for their human rights.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 13 July 2007
By N. Davoudi - Published on
This is a great book which shows the extents of the crimes done to Assyrians during WWI by Moslems. Even today, Assyrians are being persecuted for their only crime is being Christians. History does repeat itself and I hope books like this would make people aware of the crimes done against humanity. This book is very well written, a great story. I would recommend this book to everyone especially Assyrians so they know more about happened during WWI.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review 30 Jun 2009
By John B. Stinson - Published on
This book my have been one of the most difficult I have ever read. On the one hand, it is a perfectly straightforward presentation of events that occurred "long ago and far away." On the other hand, it is the true story of a family, a people and a nation as personified by the girl who would become the author's grandmother. There may be some who quibble with a date or an event but that misses the point: this book presents something deeper than mere dry facts. It describes the essence of things - truth isn't a one-time occurrence or even a string of occurrences. Truth is lived by real people who are authentic and pass that authenticity to the ones who follow them. Rosie Malek-Yonan has done that for the Assyrian people. There have been other terrible crimes committed against individuals and groups - perhaps there always will be. How the survivors deal with those crimes - and interpret those events to their descendants identifies their character as either virtuous or not. I read this book mid-way through a 21-month tour in Iraq with the State Department as an advisor to the Iraqi Ministries of Interior and Justice. The insights this book provided were most helpful. The events of the book happened 90 years ago. To many people of the region, that would seem like yesterday. Battles - won and lost - are still fresh in mind and the love and hatred of those events is passed on generation after generation. There are violent disputes going on today in this region over the outcome of this battle in 680 A.D. or that one in 1196. Exceptionally, many Assyrians have chosen a different path. 90 years after the death of 3 out of every 4 Assyrians through Kurdish assaults, famine, disease and exposure there are Assyrian doctors and nurses treating Kurdish sick, injured and elderly without regard to pass wrongs. Why the difference? Clearly their faith is a very large part. Rosie's book offers an additional explanation. Empowered, educated and involved women are the fundamental glue in a healthy society. The difference between the Assyrian culture and the Kurd, Turkish, Arab cultures around could not be more stark. The Assyrian women were the ones to nurture their loved ones, pick up the broken pieces and pass on the strength and values in spite of the atrocities inflicted on them and their families. They were not mere chattel for breeding or pleasure. Their strength did not depend on where they lived, what they ate or how they dressed. It was the depth of their character that made the difference. This is a hard book to read but well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you for the education 29 Jun 2009
By A. Hovanesian - Published on
There are not enough words to express the talent and extraordinary storytelling skills of Rosie Malek-Yonan. Her book and her family's story has been utterly educational and informative. What a discovery! This book is a thrilling read and very hard to put down. I am forever grateful to Ms. Malek-Yonan for her expertise, her fantastic writing skills and the knowledge/information/facts she has passed down to the world. I crave more of what Ms. Malek-Yonan has to teach me and all of us in the world.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
