The year 2012 marks the twentieth anniversary of the onset of the worst carnage to blight Europe since the reign of the Third Reich - the Bosnian War. How does a nation or a people come to terms with such horrors, whether as survivor or perpetrator? The war may be over, but the war lives on. While some of those interned in the camps have returned to their homes, they must live among their Bosnian Serb neighbours, many of whom participated in the ethnic cleansing - in other words, raped and tortured them, not to mention murdering their friends and relatives. It was Vulliamy's accursed honour to reveal these camps to the world in August 1992, when he penetrated both Omarska and Trnopolje. Those camps were closed, and many of the inmates were permitted to leave the country. Among his awards for newspaper reporting are: 's Foreign Correspondent of the Year Award for 1992 International Reporter of the Year 1992, the Amnesty International Media award 1992, and the Award in 1994. He had covered the Iraq war of 1991, and then proceeded to report that of 2003, revealing atrocities by the coalition invasion forces, and some of the first insurgent action.

This book really moved me, and I have immense admiration for Ed Vulliamy, whose unreserved dedication to justice for this terrible black mark in very recent history is inspiring and worthy of widespread recognition. The survivors are at the heart of the book, and Vulliamy quotes them often - perhaps because they need to be heard, in the face of Serbian obstruction and international amnesia.

The world moves on over twenty years, but in Bosnia, there has been no thaw in the hatred; no reckoning. On the other hand, if you do want to read about the unthinkably ghastly methods of murder and torture inflicted on the Bosnian Muslims, he has written about that too:.

The year 2012 marks the twentieth anniversary of the onset of the worst carnage to blight Europe since the days of the Third Reich - the Bosnian War. The campaign of 'ethnic cleansing' was infamous: the destruction of entire towns and villages, the deportation of some two million people, the massacre at Srebrenica and, perhaps most tragically, the use of concentration and death camps in our lifetime. This is not a book to enjoy, it is a book that educates. Twenty years on, Vulliamy attempts to make sense of what he found, and what has happened since to those prisoners - on both a personal and a political scale.

But in Bosnia, there has been no thaw in the hatred; no reckoning. A hurricane of violence was unleashed by Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic and his allies, the Bosnian Serbs, in pursuit of a Greater Serbia.

The author's personal Involvement and passion for the cause of the Bosnian people screams from every page. But there are stories of human resilience here that are quite extraordinary, and deeply moving. Grudgingly, the local Serb authorities allowed them a brief view of the camp. Vulliamy and his colleagues watched as 30 terrified men, some in near-skeletal condition, were herded into a canteen to eat watery soup and a piece of bread.
