5.0 out of 5 stars Pity the Nation, 28 Sept. 2002
This review is from: Pity the Nation: Lebanon at War (Paperback)
This book is, quite simply, beyond compare. To try to digest, process and retain all the information contained in it would be futile, as innumerable injustices, ceasefires, invasions, peace keeping missions, massacres and "terrorist" outrages are related by the author.
It is not possible to come away from reading 'Pity The Nation' without having been touched by the, more often than not, very personal nature of what is a national tragedy. Forgotten by the West, brutalised by their neighbours in the Middle East and by each other, no Lebanese (or Palestinian) seems to emerge from the years of conflict covered by this book unscathed. In Robert Fisk these people have inherited a coherent, unbiased and sensitive witness who bears testament to their suffering. One can only hope that the lessons to be drawn from this book will be learned one day.
