Description

In 1992 the growing threat of Serb nationalism in Bosnia forced Hasan Nuhanovic and his family to flee their home for the safety of Bosnia’s mountainous countryside. High up in the woods along the Drina River, Hasan and thousands of Bosniak refugees faced bitter nights, deprivation and death, while Serb soldiers covered their retreat with sniper fire and artillery shelling.

After many months on the move, the Bosniaks battled their way to the town of Srebrenica, their last refuge, under the charge of a small UN force. When the Bosnian-Serb army laid siege to the town, Hasan’s life once more became a daily struggle for survival, battling starvation, sniping and shelling.

This book is a powerful first-hand account of the barbarism of those years leading up to the massacre in Srebrenica; it is also an action-packed, gripping true story of struggle, survival and heroism.
