Reviews
"Extraordinary and beautifully written."

--San Francisco Chronicle

"Profoundly disquieting, but that obviously is Lindqvist's ultimate purpose."

--Associated Press

"A profound litany of what might someday be considered among the most counterproductive military actions ever taken."

--The Nation

"Lindqvist plots a clear path towards the ever more horrendous holocausts that lie ahead. It is gripping stuff."

--New Statesman

"A work of great originality."

--Geoff Dyer

"Continuously interesting, often fascinating."

--Financial Times

"Impassioned, wide-ranging."

--The Times (London)

"Lindqvist's book is partly a history, but it is also an antiwar monument. . . . He is interested not just in the history of bombing, but also in its subsequent reconfiguration in a standardised form of public memory which is little better than 'a collective denial of the past.'"

--London Review of Books

"An original work, written with a moral passion that is uncommon."

--The Sunday Times (London)
