Product description


"A striking account of the ruthless terror wreaked by both sides on the innocent civilians trapped in the pocket of land ... he has published the first comprehensive, factual account of the mass killing and why the UN was powerless to prevent it" (Jon Swain Sunday Times)

"Comprehensive, fair and well-written" (Jason Burke Literary Review)

"'What does the Sri Lankan government have to hide? That's the question Gordon Weiss sets out to answer in this painstakingly researched and referenced study, and his conclusions are nothing short of horrific' " (Scotsman)

"A fair and brilliantly written tour de force of this long forgotten war. A book that is long overdue." (Roma Tearne, author of Brixton Beach)

"It is not easy to read this shattering, heart-breaking tale of savagery and suffering, of pathetic victims caught in a terrible embrace of savagery and despair, from early hopes for freedom and justice to the hideous denouement. But doing so not only lifts the veil that conceals one of the most awful tragedies of the current era, but also helps us understand what should be done, not just in this sad and beautiful land, long before horrors spiral out of control." (Noam Chomski)

Book Description
