5.0 out of 5 stars An essential and very Human inside into the war
Firstly, I would suggest reading this book in conjunction with Silber's book "Death of Yugoslavia". Glenny and Silber worked together for part of the war, and so their accounts coincide nicely. (Although Silber never mentions this in her book, Misha mentions it many times!)While Silber's work focuses on the presidents, leaders, generals, officials and...

3.0 out of 5 stars In formative and deep
A very complex book, about a confusing situation, but the writer starts in the middle of the conflict, and does not give a background that would make it clearer for an uninformed reader. A good book for one who wants the details and clear explanation of events, but it would be advisable to do some background research first.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the Best, 30 Oct 2011
This review is from: The Fall of Yugoslavia (Paperback)
There are no better books to be found on this subject. Glenny's writing is accurate, honest and well constructed. Clearly, from what I have read in another review on this site it is sometimes too close to the bone and unpalatable for some people. The saying goes...the truth hurts. I applaud the author for telling it the way it is and for explaining the Balkan's war in such detail. It's an extrmemly difficult and often sensitive subject. A great read. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

This review is from: The Fall of Yugoslavia (Paperback)
I read all of this with interest after a trip to Montenegro and Croatia. I found it a bit difficult to follow in parts, partly because of the names of the people and places but did read it all through and feel that I have a better understanding of what happened during that period.
