9780099548478: The Cage: The fight for Sri Lanka & the Last Days of the Tamil Tigers

In just four months in 2009, Sri Lanka's 26 year-old desperate civil war came to a brutal and bloody end on a desolate stretch of beach in the island's north east.

Tens of thousands of civilians were killed when the government decimated the guerilla organisation, the Tamil Tigers.

Gordon Weiss witnessed the conflict at first hand as a UN spokesman in Colombo. His devastating account unravels the compelling history that led up to that final horrific episode, peeling back the Sri Lankan government's cloak of silence to reveal the truth of those tragic events.

Review:

"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)

Book Description:

A devastating account of the last days of Sri Lanka's bloody civil war - from a first hand witness determined to tell the truth
