Review:

‘Brilliant...this powerfully-written book is filled with accounts of horror, pain and injustice. His triumph is that he has turned a slightly dubious and over-romanticised craft into a honorable vocation.’ Independent

‘His forte is straight reporting, such as his three interviews with Osama bin Laden. At least as good are his meetings with Saddam Hussein, Khomeini and Sadeq Khalkhali, the hanging judge of the Iranian revolution, and his close-ups of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the launch of Saddam's war against Iran, an ambush by Islamists of an Algerian police patrol, and a lift into trouble in an Apache attack helicopter on the Iraq/Turkey border.’ Guardian

‘A stimulating and absorbing book, by a man who speaks Arabic, who has known the region better than most, and has met the leading players, from Bin Laden to Ahmad Chalabi. A formidable production.’ New York Times

‘Full of furious, vivid and highly personalised writing...An important book by an intrepid and talented writer.’ Literary Review

From the Back Cover:

Vivid personal reporting and incisive, angry historical analysis
make Robert Fisk's passionate eyewitness account of the events that have
shaped the Middle East in to an unforgettable work. Thirty years at the
heart of world-shaking events have produced a masterpiece that is personal,
tragic and compassionate, a chronicle of the death by deceit of tens of
thousands of men and women - Muslim, Christian and Jew - and the life of
one of the world's most acclaimed journalists.
