Reviews

"Quite literally the most powerful and disturbing book that I have ever read."
--Antony Beevor, author of The Second World War and Arnhem

"A wake-up call to the magnitude and horrors of rape in war -- the world's most neglected war crime. These women's stories will make you weep, and then rage at the world's indifference."
--Amal Clooney, international human rights lawyer

"Christina Lamb has done the impossible -- and written women into history. This book, Our Bodies, Their Battlefields is an extraordinary achievement of in depth journalism, powerful storytelling, grit and heart. A wake up call to the magnitude and horror of rape of women throughout history and the world. If you read one book this year, read this. Astounding."
--Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues and The Apology

"For millennia mass rape has been a weapon of war. But the testimony of abuse is almost entirely absent from all recorded history. At last this brave, beautiful and brutal book allows victims to speak -- devastatingly, inspirationally."
--Bettany Hughes, author of The Hemlock Cup and Venus and Aphrodite
