9780143120315: Endgame: The Betrayal and Fall of Srebrenica, Europe's Worst Massacre Since World War II

In 1993, the UN Security Council made Srebrenica the worlds first UN-protected civilian safe area, only to see the town fall two years later after UN commanders turned down repeated requests for NATO air strikes to halt attacking Bosnian Serbs. As many as 7,000 Muslim men perished in mass executions after the battle.In Endgame: The Betrayal and Fall of Srebrenica, Europes Worst Massacre Since World War II, Pulitzer Prizewinning author David Rohde exposes how the United States, France, Great Britain, the United Nations and the Bosnian government allowed 40,000 Muslims to fall into the hands of their potential executioners.Drawing on previously undisclosed accounts of top-level UN meetings, internal documents, and hundreds of interviews with participants on all sides, Endgame is a tale of cynical power politics in the postCold War era, a case study in genocide, and a disturbing testament to the power of propaganda and self-delusion. A new afterword by the author updates recent efforts to find the missing victims of Srebrenica and to apprehend and prosecute the executioners. }In 1993, the UN Security Council officially made Srebrenica the worlds first UN-protected civilian safe area and stripped the towns Muslim defenders of their tanks and artillery. Two years later, Srebrenica fell after UN commanders turned down repeated requests for NATO air strikes to halt attacking Bosnian Serbs. As many as 7,000 Muslim men perished in mass executions or ambushes along a harrowing forty-mile flight one survivor called The Marathon of Death.In Endgame: The Betrayal and Fall of Srebrenica, Europes Worst Massacre Since World War II, Pulitzer Prizewinning author David Rohde follows the experiences of seven central charactersthree Muslims in Srebrenica, two Dutch peacekeepers charged with defending the surrounded town, and two Serb Army soldiers attacking itthrough the ten-day period that changed the course of the war in Bosnia and was arguably the darkest hour in United Nations history. Rohde exposes how the United States, France, Great Britain, the United Nations and the Bosnian governmentout of incompetence or cynicismallowed 40,000 Muslims to fall into the hands of their potential executioners. Part of an apparent Serb endgame to win the war, Srebrenicas fall ended up playing a crucial role in the Clinton administrations endgame strategy that halted the conflict. A new afterword by the author updates recent efforts to find the missing victims of Srebrenica and to apprehend and prosecute the executioners.The most comprehensive book to date on the subject, Endgame is a tale of cynical power politics in the postCold War era, a case study in genocide, and a disturbing testament to the power of propaganda and self-delusion. }

Product Description:

"Powerful... definitive... Rohde tells the Srebrenica story with all the shades of gray the truth demanded." --The Washington Post
In 1996, at the height of the Bosnian wars, a correspondent for The Christian Science Monitor named David Rohde uncovered a horrifying story that became an enduring symbol of the genocidal nature of that conflict, earning him his first Pulitzer Prize. Endgame is the full-length narrative of the nightmare he stumbled upon in the town of Srebrenica, where a massacre of historic proportions has been allowed to happen due to the negligence of the United States, NATO, and the United Nations. Told through the eyes of the soldiers, peacekeepers, and civilians who were there, this is a vital, unforgettable work of history about an atrocity that could have been prevented.
