A very interesting account of the real life intrigue and incidents leading upto the Libyan revolution and overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi Helped me get a better understanding of the region and the times The book is written in a very objective manner and I appreciated that this let the reader draw hisher own conclusions regarding the people and politics involved Interspersing history with current events and introducing the everyday people caught in the conflict were commendable factors though I thought both aspects could have been reduced in freuency The Free Generation Movement was inspirational while Wanise Elisawi s life made me introspect the sinister undercurrents in international politics as well as the continuing battle between those who have power and those who don t was driven home well Definitely recommend the book

A very interesting book on the little know history of Libya and Gaddafi The author has done a pretty good job of presenting various aspects of the 42 years of Libya under Gaddafi which includes all the Western governments and corporations desperate to sell Libya contracts The books reads like a story which kept me interested throughout I enjoyed the profiles of many revolutionaries and even supporters of the Gaddafi regime I was also surprised to find out about the role played by atar and UAE in the revolution two countries which I didn t believe were big players in the region I think the only area which remained unexplained was the kernel of the revolution who were the masterminds and what were their vision after Gaddafi had been ousted The last chapter touches on the Islamist agenda but not to a great extent This makes the whole book seem like a huge newspaper article which is a common fault with journalists turned from journalists At least it is start as much needs to be written about this land and its history
