In this unique eyewitness record, James Pettifer gives a startling and evocative portrayal of the grim and fearful world of Kosova from the imposition of martial law in 1990 till March 1999. As a writer for The Times and Wall Street Journal Europe, he witnessed most key events, from the emergence of the Kosova Liberation Army in May 1996 to the massive refugee movements of 1998 and 1999, the ground war between the KLA and the Serbs and the NATO bombing campaign and subsequent liberation of Kosovo.
