Maass, a WASHINGTON POST correspondent, begins this examination of the war in Bosnia in a high state of moral outrage, and the intensity of his feelings only increases from there. Repelled by the atrocities he covers, he dissects the villainy of the Serbian leaders but also the complicity of Western leaders, who stood by while hundreds of thousands were killed, raped and otherwise brutalized. This is no middle-of-the-road account of a conflict between enemies equally at fault. Maass likens the Serbian leadership to the Nazis and condemns them for a bloodthirstiness not seen in Europe in fifty years. Guidall proves equal to the task, and it is no easy one. He conveys the deeply felt despair, horror and bitterness that infuse Maass's account of this terrible conflict. M.O. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 00]
