Synopsis

In just four months in 2009, Sri Lanka's 26 year-old desperate civil war came to a brutal and bloody end on a desolate stretch of beach in the island's north east.



Tens of thousands of civilians were killed when the government decimated the guerilla organisation, the Tamil Tigers.



Gordon Weiss witnessed the conflict at first hand as a UN spokesman in Colombo. His devastating account unravels the compelling history that led up to that final horrific episode, peeling back the Sri Lankan government's cloak of silence to reveal the truth of those tragic events.

Gordon Weiss was the United Nations Spokesman in Sri Lanka for two years during the recent civil war. For two decades, he worked as a journalist and for international organisations in numerous conflict and natural disaster zones. He is currently a Visiting Scholar at the University of Sydney, Australia. Twitter @gordonkweiss / www.gordonweissauthor.com

Customer Reviews

This gets to the heart of the crisis that killed and injured so many people. When you have visited the country as we have this is even more poignant but even if you haven't , this is a great history lesson about the futility of terrorism. People in the end still have to live together and find a way to co-exist.
