Disapointing, 19 July 2013
I expected more and learned little from what frankly was a disappointing publication.
It all but skims over the 1974 invasion and the events between the 1st and 2nd phases where neither party complied with it's obligations; it does not deal with the complications caused by the political turmoil in Greece where the new civilian government was constantly looking over it's shoulder in case the army intervened once again. To my knowledge Kissinger had more of a grasp of events than the book gives him credit for.
On the plus side I thought it was well balanced; criticism by Greek and Turkish Cypriots is inevitable as their opinions are often prejudiced by their side's distorted interpretation of facts.
