Customer Review

on 27 December 2009
This has to be the best piece of writing by far covering the Balkan Conflict. Having served in Sarajevo durng this time with the UN Civilan Police I can assure you everything Stankovic writes is authentic and right on the mark. I had always hoped to never forget my experiences in Sarajevo but placed them in a "drawer" that I seldom visited. Soon after cracking this book the sounds, the smells, the people,the futlity,and the danger all came back. Any book that can accomplish this is a tribute to the author.
Stankovic covers the back room deals, the absolute ineptitude of the U.N leadership and most of all the suffering endured by the "the little people". Sarajevo was a dangerous place not only because of the conflict, but also because foreign intelligence services used it as an operational training ground. These services operated behind the scenes but always ended up at the PTT looking for assistance from the same people they were cutting off at the knees. There is no doubt in my mind it was through such people Milos Stankovic met his demise.
This book should be required reading for any member of the military, police,or a civilian contemplating working in an area of conflict.
