5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent book!, July 22, 2003
By 
Sarah (Ontario,Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Inat : Images of Serbia and the Kosovo Conflict (Paperback)
I've been trying to find some books that portray the Serbian side of the war, and finaly, found this one and I'm glad I did! Taylor does an excelent job of denoucing the NATO and Western anti-Serb propagnda and giving some facts that are long over-due. Though what happend cannot be undone, I do find some 'happyness' in the fact that some people are finaly trying to show the "other side of the coin", it's war, there is always two sides. So, if your thinking of reading a book to get a (first hand) look at the other side, read this book, and thanks and congrats to thoes who did!

4.0 out of 5 stars NATO's war - the untold story, June 8, 2000
By 
This review is from: Inat : Images of Serbia and the Kosovo Conflict (Paperback)
My view of the conflict in Kosovo and Nato's campaign received a severe blow from this book. The book offers a chilling account of the civilian destruction caused by Nato's campaign, calling into question Nato's claim that this was a "moral war".

4.0 out of 5 stars INAT: Ask the Infantry, June 16, 2000
By 
This review is from: Inat : Images of Serbia and the Kosovo Conflict (Paperback)
Scott Taylor is the kind of comrade you want in a foxhole, but want to keep away from your daughters. In INAT, this former Canadian commando turned journalist demonstrates a vigorous form of combat journalism practiced by very few, such as David Hackworth. I know them both. This is Ernie Pyle's "Worm's eye view," revived.
In INAT, Scott demonstrates his ironic humor and keen eye: visiting the Canadian Task Force in November, five months after the conclusion of the NATO air war, Scott noticed 3 or four bombed out chicken coops, or "poultry barns which appear to have been mistaken for military barracks or sheds, due to what Scott and I subsequently reckoned must be the heat and lighting in chicken coops. "It has been interesting for the Canadian soldiers to observe the impact and destructive power of the various munitions employed," he reports. "NATO bombers seemed to have a penchant for destroying poultry farms. "We haven't yet figured out the military objective in obliterating all those chickens," said one soldier. "But it sure made one hell of a mess." (P. 135).
Scott does a fine job of debunking US and NATO propaganda (throughout), heroic KLA war victories (p. 136) and even a deliberate Yugoslav disinformation campaign about how many NATO planes were shot down (pp. 123-24). Hemingway once warned "War is a crime. Ask the infantry and ask the dead." The NATO air war is no exception. Scott is definitely infantry and alive to tell a mighty illuminating tale. --
Oh, yes; Scott found there was a lot of sexual maneuvers in Belgrade parks during the bombing. Love and War. You find those pages, yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally some truth......, August 25, 2001
By 
Douglas Mrkonjic (Windsor, Ontario Canada) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Inat : Images of Serbia and the Kosovo Conflict (Paperback)
An excellent first hand account of the events during the bombing. He captures the essence and will of the Serbian people with an unbiased eye towards truth. Very refreshing after the organized demonization of the Serbs for political expedience.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect mixture of facts and personal experience, August 3, 2000
By 
Susanne Glass (Vienna, Austria) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Inat : Images of Serbia and the Kosovo Conflict (Paperback)
First, I think it is very important to show what happened while the Kosovo war. The problem is, people soon get bored, because they've already heard a lot of it. But Scott Taylor writes his diary as a mixture of personal experiences and interesting facts, and this is exactly the way to get the people. Second, people often have no idea about the conditions for the journalists to work while the war. I think it is good to tell them about it. And third, nobody knows the one and only truth about such an war. But some authors behave like they are the owners of the truth. Scott writes a diary - and so everybody knows, those are the things he has seen. This is Scott's truth, and this is - I think - the best way to write about war. I'm a journalist too and while the Kosovo war I was in Skopje and after that in Pristina, and I'm a little bit jalous that I didn't write a diary-book. S.G.
