5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful record of this murderous tragedy., 18 Jun. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Endgame: The Betrayal and Fall of Srebrenica (Hardcover)
Rohde's Endgame is one of the most lasting books I've ever read, both visually and emotionally. You can see the effort it took to recount the entire episode as it moves forward in real time, jumping to a number of characters and slowly revealing their experiences and fates. You absorb it as you would a movie. You see all sides of the Srebrenica disaster, from the Bosnians in the town and aggressive Serbs moving closer to the helpless Dutch peacekeepers and the Muslim men fleeing for their lives. I had watched the events in the Balkans unfold, but was a little too young to fully grasp what was going on. This book definitely put it in perspective with detail. Its real value, though, could be its ability to fortell what has just happened in Kosovo. In Endgame, you get a picture of Milosevic as a man possessed to purge the Balkans of all remnants of the Muslims. Even though he is not a major character, his influence is clear. Reading this book made Milosevic's actions in Kosovo seem all the more predictable, and the deaths of so many Albanian Kosovars so much more disturbing.
