I would say that this was the best book I read last year. I really wanted to understand what the hell happened during those years in Serbia, Bosnia, Croatia, Kosovo and so on...Brian Hall just exceeded my expectations and I am so grateful that he could write a very easy reading with many facts, data, main events, descriptions and about experiences with local people that will make everything so clear for you. I read it two times since it has a lot of details and valuable information. Bottom line...if you want to understand the war, its reasons, consequences, main events, and details from many different perspectives (serbs, croats and bosnians)...read it now.

Probably the best captured "psyche" of different waring parties in a former Yugoslavia; so amazing how someone could "guess" correctly the essence of the sad reality and the terrible aftermath of the genocide and the fall of the once peaceful coexistence of the different nationalities and religions.

This is my choice for the best introduction to the conflicts in what was Yugoslavian. When I was hosting an exchange student from the Balkans, I read 15 books in an effort to gain understanding. I was frustrated with blatantly one-sided books, and also books which had all the names, dates and horrors but did not help me understand. Hall's book was the best. While I will never truly understand the roots of the hatred, this thoughtful and amazingly non-partisan book opened windows for an uninvolved American into the psyches of that troubled region. I wish I had read it first.

Very enjoyable. Personable. Hall does a great job of showing both the truth of some stereotypes along with the nuance that makes peoples and individuals so much more than that. Especially recommended for those who want to understand the differing peoples of this impossible place.

It simply and accurately documents the history of the one of the disasters created at Versaillles

By a writer who lived in Yugoslavia just before, the during, the war that broke out among its factions. I found it troubling, that its title really does say it like it is.

Snowskin
A very good first hand account of the early days of the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s Very clear and interesting!

Could have used a little more info on political situation throughout Yugoslavia, and at times a little long winded. But overall very informative firsthand account of the dissolution of Yugoslavia.
