Review

Richard Cottrell's Gladio is a tour de force. Explosive, topical, and up to the minute, it takes the reader into realms of research usually reserved to those who spend years digging deep into history. Cottrell presents a wealth of insight and factual knowledge that is unmatched. Gladio is a must have for anyone who values the truth. --Madison Ruppert, End the Lie

About the Author

Richard Cottrell enjoyed a long career in the British print and broadcast media. As a television journalist specialising in politics and economics he contributed regularly to the national ITV network. In 1979 he was elected as a Conservative in the first direct elections to the European Parliament. Over the next ten years he sat on the parliament s important committees and published two books, one a polemical attack on the EU's farming policy (The Sacred Cow) and another (Blood on Their Hands) which extended the inquiry he performed on behalf of the parliament into the murder of British journalist Ann Chapman under the military junta in Greece. His inquiry cleared an innocent man. He wrote the highly praised landmark Cottrell Report into the activities of pseudo religious cults such as the Moonies and their harmful influences on families and society. Richard entered politics as an enthusiastic European but turned agnostic "as a result of experience of the inner workings of a profoundly anti-democratic system."

Having had the fortunate chance to read parts of the text before publication, and being Italian, I must say that this book makes me feel less lonely. Although in a peculiar, sad way. I realized that my country is not the only one that has been torn apart by means of a secret war waged against the people by governments aided by far-right, military-backed terrorist groups. Anybody in this peninsula who has read just a little bit of 20th century history is aware that the country's most merciless terrorists, both of communist and fascist ideology, had some connections with secret services that were in turn connected to Nato forces dwelling in camps and bases peppered all over Italy. But what Richard Cottrell's book manages to reveal is that this situation, far from being solely Italian, was part of a bigger plan that covered all Europe. Although definitive proofs are always hard to get in a age when information is continuously written and re-written, the many doubts posed by this book are sufficient to make one think about all the attacks, bombings, clumsy military and police operations that the men and women living in Europe had to suffer during the past century (and perhaps more are to come in the future...). Now it is clear that it's too easy to blame amateurish terrorist cells or UNO's incompetence for what happened in Italy in the 60's or in Bosnia in the 90's. If the world is but a stage, then somewhere there must be a director mastering the puppets who kill innocent people in the name of any principle that can come handy. Richard Cottrell gives his own interpretation of recent history, providing the tiles of a mosaic that is unfinished but whose picture becomes quite intelligible. And, above all, once again we come to see that the cowboys in the white hat might not be so good.

Born in Eastern-Europe ( Communist Romania ), I saw behind the Curtain only half of the Puzzle. I had to come to ' Land of the Free and Home of the Brave ' and live the..."

The Slavery is Very Much Alive Today and the debt and the terror ( via the ' idiot-box ' ) are the invisible chains...' The table is tilted, folks. The game is rigged. And nobody seems to notice. Nobody seems to care. ' - George Carlin - The American Dream.

PLEASE NOTE: PER ITS CUSTOMER REVIEW POLICY, AMAZON EDITORS HAVE REMOVED THE RELEVANT URL'S THAT I PROVIDED TO SOURCE MATERIAL AND REPLACED THEM WITH "[...]".

As someone who shares many fundamental elements of Cottrell's worldview, I found this book a great disappointment. Those who do not already understand the topics that he discusses will be immediately repelled from it, and for the best of reasons. Someone like me who wants to learn more of the core details of state-controlled and state-sponsored terrorism used as the pretext to justify seizure of ever more of our civil liberties finds little more than bombastic opinion.

Cottrell's "writing" sounds like his gabbing to a pal on the phone who then has his precious words transcribed and published largely as is. The "analysis" offered varies between adolescent name-calling and Hollywood gossip-column potshots with rarely if ever a coherent historical narrative. In a book that cries out for reliable sources and citations of bold claims, there are few if any. This might not be so bad if at least the book had its facts right, but it often does not. Thus a newcomer to this essential area of history will be put-off and likely offended, equating the immaturity of style with a fatuity of its claims.

Readers interested in understanding the general topic of the modern "democratic" nation-state as a criminal enterprise that is busy up to its eyeballs in domestic covert ops, including state-sponsored domestic and also international terrorism, can learn a great deal more from the following three books and one movie: James W.

Format: Paperback
This very well researched book is a must read for anyone wanting to get a grasp on NATO and its new role as world policeman, on what and who is behind the E. U. and seems to be behind the crashing and burning of Europe occurring before our eyes. This book gives key information as to who the players are in the move toward world fascism -- Americans would do well to pay attention as we are have not been and will not be excluded this "strategy of tension" terror. In other words, this is not just a history of Europe during the second half of the 20th C. I was wondering if the author would pull his punches in addressing certain delicate subjects (child trafficking and pedophilia), but he doesn't seem to do so. This is a very sobering read, and and essential read. In the beginning the author does appear to get bogged down in detail, but read on, the pieces, names, and subjects fit together yielding a ghastly whole. To cure a cancer we must learn to recognize it for what it is.
