Praise for Nicholas Blanford’s Killing Mr. Lebanon
 
“A rich piece of storytelling . . . brilliant stuff.”—Scott MacLeod, Middle East correspondent, Time magazine
 
“This is not only a real-life thriller but a story with huge implications for the future of the region. Drawing on more than a decade of experience in Lebanon, Blanford is the man to tell it.”—Richard Beeston, foreign editor, The Times
 
“As gripping as a thriller, yet packed with sober insight . . . required reading for anyone interested in today’s Middle East.”—Joshua Landis, author of SyriaComment.com and associate professor of Middle Eastern studies, University of Oklahoma
 
 “A brisk portrait of the man’s travails and legacy.”—Max Rodenbeck, The New York Review of Books

He has made good use of what are very good sources within Hezbollah and southern Lebanon to lace the book with facts, revelations and detailed descriptions.

Format: Hardcover
This is a stunning addition to the sea of books on the Israel-Arab conflict genre. Welcome in that it, unusually for a Western author, approaches the subject from a wholly Arab - in this case Hezebollah - perspective. It makes for enlightening reading. It's also pacy and fluent, mostly resisting the urge to submerge itself in a sea of geo-political babble. For that author Nicholas Blanford, a journalist based in Beirut, deserves immense credit. He has made good use of what are very good sources within Hezbollah and southern Lebanon to lace the book with facts, revelations and detailed descriptions. Much of it enters the public domain for the first time here. The book is at its best when Blanford writes about his own experiences on the ground, whether the claustrophobic search for Hezbollah bunkers or amidst the carnage after the 1996 Israeli shelling on the UN outpost at Cana. However, this is still an imperfect book. There are no maps of southern Lebanon, nor pictures of the main characters or events. Organisational charts tabling the rise of Hezbollah are also missing. Blanford covers this in the early chapters, but the chart would have been a handy reference point to flip to later in the book. The strength of Blanford's sources are, paradoxically, also a weakness of the book. Hezbollah, by Blanford's admission, are masters of disinformation and in some parts a reader is never quite sure where the truth begins and ends. Blanford also does not subject Hezbollah to any rigour over some of their actions, notably why their fighters retreated into Cana's UN outpost in 1996, thus inviting Israeli shelling. But don't let these oversights dim your enthusiasm. This book remains an essential read, particularly as the Israelis and Hezbollah prepare for another war.

Format: Hardcover
Reluctantly, this book gets three stars for blurring the tremendous factual reporting with the poignant personal narrative. Blanford's work is admirable in it's depth and first-hand, non-establishment perspective. But the reader is left wanting more -- either more concise geo-political assessment (Iran's influence, Syria's aid, post-9/11 strategies, etc) or more cohesive personal interviews with leaders and citizens. Tackling both is ambitious and cumbersome. Definitely read the first and last chapters but only skim the remainder for hidden nuggets of info.

The most comprehensive, easy to read, accounting of Hizballah I have ever read. Hard to put down. A must read for anyone with serious need to learn about this organization/terror group.

A really fascinating study of a unique organization in the Middle East. Blanford's thorough analysis of Iran's Viet Cong could use a follow-up considering current events and Hezbollah's unabashed enforcement of Persian policy.

Blanford has spent decades covering Hezbollah and he fills the book with personal experiences in southern Lebanon. Some might not like the book, because most of the focus is on Hezbollah and he does not portray Israel in the best light. The author doesn't sugar coat anything.
