War Games: The Story of Aid and War in Modern Time&hellip by Linda Polman

5.0 out of 5 stars Two titles - one book, 29 Jun 2013
Linda Polman's War Games is, apart from an introduction, the same as her Crisis Caravan. I could not get the contents of Crisis Caravan as this was a kindle edition. But the first chapter of both books is Goma -a total ethical disaster.

As I had to rate the book for the purpose of this review I have given it 5 stars, because I think it is excellent
