    The Sri Lankan Civil War remains the bloodiest of modern conflicts, and its horrifying stories are still spilling out of the devastated beaches of the country s north More than 40000 Tamil civilians were shelled to death and murdered by the Sri Lankan Army on a small stretch of beach where the Tigers made their last stand The Tigers sandwiched the civilians between them and the advancing Lankan Army, hoping to attract international pressure over civilian casualties, so the Army would back off The Sri Lankan Civil War remains the bloodiest of modern conflicts, and its horrifying stories are still spilling out of the devastated beaches of the country s north More than 40000 Tamil civilians were shelled to death and murdered by the Sri Lankan Army on a small stretch of beach where the Tigers made their last stand The Tigers sandwiched the civilians between them and the advancing Lankan Army, hoping to attract international pressure over civilian casualties, so the Army would back off.It was a cruel gamble that didn t pay off.Sri Lanka had prepared for this eventuality From the outset, they had made sure that there were no foreign journalists or troublesome UN officials in the north who would go and tell the world what they did They moved in, and indiscriminately killed everything that moved This wasn t war, this was extermination A stronger word, used much later, was genocide When the nation faced criticism from the international community and Human Rights organisations about what it did in the last days of the war, Sri Lanka denied doing anything wrong It is still in denial As a tactic to hold off the world, it was brilliant No one in Sri Lanka has yet been convicted of anything approaching war crimes.This is the story of the Tamils who were caught in between, and lost everything.Harrison makes sure that we know at the outset that this is serious, harrowing reportage, and that there will be no pulled punches here The UN failed, the international community failed, andimportantly humanity failed, facing a bloodbath that remains very difficult to make sense of.The stories she tells are graphic and numbing They pile on, rendering a reader senseless with the callous loss of life that is described Several times I had to put the book down and look around, to assure myself that the world I lived in was the same that had swallowed these people up It is a very tough book to read.In the end, I didn t know what to make of it So much blood, so much cruelty, so much hate and pain For what What was Sri Lanka trying to prove So many times in the war they could have gained the moral upper hand the Tigers had lost that years ago But they chose to kill and maim, to murder and rape, and the state stood by and watched How can a country born out of this be whole How can it move on Won t the fissures that have been cemented over with gunmetal be just skin deep Won t the slightest tremor bare the raw anger underneath yet again This was the lesson the hollow reconciliation of World War 1 taught us And yet we forget.This is an important book, but I doubt if the island nation understands that their peace is as fragile as a taped up china teacup It will hold for some time, but you don t know for how long, and you certainly can t drink tea in it anyway

    An excellent account of the civil war that explains a conflict little understood in this country The human cost of the war is plainly exposed, mostly through the first person accounts of survivors A very important book, a must for anyone seeking to understand Sri Lanka, or indeed war itself.

    Very well written It must have been an effort to trace the few survivors in various countries across South Asia and Europe and get them to share their traumatic experiences It shows the extent to which the Sri Lankan government went to mislead its own citizens, not that neighboring governments do not It also shows the ineffectiveness of the UN bureaucracy and the practical approach that agencies like Red Cross had to adopt Subsequent events including disappearance of journalists both Tamil Very well written It must have been an effort to trace the few survivors in various countries across South Asia and Europe and get them to share their traumatic experiences It shows the extent to which the Sri Lankan government went to mislead its own citizens, not that neighboring governments do not It also shows the ineffectiveness of the UN bureaucracy and the practical approach that agencies like Red Cross had to adopt Subsequent events including disappearance of journalists both Tamil and Sinhalese Continued torture and disappearance of Tamil origin Sri Lankans as well as the current move to impeach the Sri Lankan Chief Justice What would have made it even better and a unbiased one would have been greater coverage of the Sri Lankan government s views It clearly illustrates the chronology of the Tamil issue in Sri Lanka which is not well understood by casual observers In the broader context there are two points made how can we prevent rampant misuse of power by governments and how do we devolve power so that local communities are able to make decisions better suited to them Will efforts by the citizens of Sri Lanka, the UN reports and acknowledgment of public apologies made by Governments across the world for their mistakes influence the future Sri Lankan governments finally apologise and take remedial action is a moot question

    There is no other better source of information on war than first hand accounts All human endeavours can be seen in two levels at the human scale and the bigger picture But of all human endeavours, War is probably the only one where the bigger picture cannot be justified by ignoring the things at the human scale Frances Harrison illustrates this very clearly with her book It is a collection of stories of real people mostly civilians and a few Tamil Tigers during the last few months of th There is no other better source of information on war than first hand accounts All human endeavours can be seen in two levels at the human scale and the bigger picture But of all human endeavours, War is probably the only one where the bigger picture cannot be justified by ignoring the things at the human scale Frances Harrison illustrates this very clearly with her book It is a collection of stories of real people mostly civilians and a few Tamil Tigers during the last few months of the Sri Lankan Civil war when the Sri Lankan Military as well as the Tamil Tigers took strategic decisions which are never justifiable outside their ideologies The Sri Lankan military dropped all its sensibility to go out an full out war driven by tamil phobia The tamil tigers on the other hand, betrayed their own kind for tactical reasons and tried to get the civilian body count up so that UN intervenes What emerges is a terrifying tale of tamil civilians caught between the devil and the deap sea The book raises scary questions for international community also The ineffectiveness of UN, the moral ambiguity of nations like US, India and China who didn t question SL for their own strategic reasons If things are as bad as the book portrays the ethnic situation in SL is still precarious and waiting to explode

    The book gives the real life experiences of different tamil non tamil civilians commoners who were caught in the cross fire of the final war against the LTTE Here are some really gory accounts of the war crimes committed by the LTTE and the srilankan army The book is well written, and I am surprised about the completely un biased stance that the author takes, although it seemed to me that the book was slightly bent against the srilankan army This may still be reflecting on reality though.The The book gives the real life experiences of different tamil non tamil civilians commoners who were caught in the cross fire of the final war against the LTTE Here are some really gory accounts of the war crimes committed by the LTTE and the srilankan army The book is well written, and I am surprised about the completely un biased stance that the author takes, although it seemed to me that the book was slightly bent against the srilankan army This may still be reflecting on reality though.The description of events is also very good, as I could imagine the scene described most of the times, and some events moved me to tears The author also scores in correlating intersection points between different stories Two things went missing we heard about the views of the civilians who were in the cross fire, but not from soldiers in the srilankan army I am specifically not mentioning diplomats because they were not in the frontline, and you know what you will get from them anyway , and some sinhalese commoners living in the south of lanka on the lines of what information was reaching the lankan common man That would have given a rounded perspective.Overall, a wonderful book

    This book was an excellent account of what surely must be one of the least known and arguably most horrific conflicts to take place in recent years One thing that struck me from a very early stage of reading this book is that the author maintained an incredibly unbiased account of things considering what she was describing, never shying away from placing the relevant blame at the door of the LTTE as well as at the door of the Sri Lankan army Also another thing which was clear throughout the bo This book was an excellent account of what surely must be one of the least known and arguably most horrific conflicts to take place in recent years One thing that struck me from a very early stage of reading this book is that the author maintained an incredibly unbiased account of things considering what she was describing, never shying away from placing the relevant blame at the door of the LTTE as well as at the door of the Sri Lankan army Also another thing which was clear throughout the book was the careful way in which the author approached retelling the stories of those she had interviewed, at no point did it seem forced or exploitative.This book would be highly useful for anyone studying either civil war, humanitarian crisis or genocide ethnic cleansing at a university level due to the consistent use of references to NGO or government reports discussing the events as detailed in the book

    It was a world in which death was so omnipresent that few expected to walk out alive Harrison manages to take the experiences of a handful and turn them into the voices of the hundreds of thousands of civilians caught between two ruthless factions determined to fight until the end These civilians were failed by those who claimed to be fighting for them, their country, and by the international community as a whole.Especially frustrating is the fact that even today, civilians continue to suffer It was a world in which death was so omnipresent that few expected to walk out alive Harrison manages to take the experiences of a handful and turn them into the voices of the hundreds of thousands of civilians caught between two ruthless factions determined to fight until the end These civilians were failed by those who claimed to be fighting for them, their country, and by the international community as a whole.Especially frustrating is the fact that even today, civilians continue to suffer and die needlessly in Syria, South Sudan, and elsewhere.An absolutely devastating and utterly painful read I can t even begin to imagine the trauma and unspeakable horror of those who have actually lived those last few months.All I can say is, while I never want to read this book again, it s a must read and will always have a place on my shelf
