From Enemy Territory: Pale Diary

by Mladen Vuksanovic - £9.99  Saqi Books (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780863567261 | ISBN 10: 0863567266

Set at the outbreak of the war in Bosnia, this diary penned by an award-winning journalist, the late Mladen Vuksanovic, records the extraordinary unfolding of events. He lived in the ski resort of Pale, 15km above Sarajevo. When Radovan Karadzic launched his savage assault on the city in April 1992, Vuksanovic - refusing to collaborate - became a prisoner in his own home, cut off from his children and friends below. He expressed his terror and disgust in this diary. During the hundred days of Karadzic's rule in Pale, Vuksanovic describes in chilling detail, not only the horrors of war - the looting, ethnic cleansing and betrayal that became commonplace - but also the profound mental strain of conflict on the individual. He and his wife finally managed to escape in a UN refugee bus via Hungary to Croatia.
