Hair Raising !,
This review is from: Trusted Mole: A Soldier's Journey into Bosnia's Heart of Darkness (Hardcover)
I had always thought that it was music that evoked the strongest memories of situations past and experiences that had staled over time. Until I read Trusted Mole that is.
In his powerful account of his time in Bosnia, Milos recounts much that I have often wondered about since I served with him in Sarajevo. While the details are new to me, his commentary brings a first real understanding of what was afoot in those dark days. However it is his uncanny ability to recreate the atmosphere of the country that set the hairs of my neck on end. I recognised in his descriptions so much of what I too had felt and experienced. While I can never vouch for the details, the atmosphere he creates is uncannily realistic - a true reflection of the hopelessness and frustration felt by so many people on all sides of the conflict.
