4 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Gary Selikow on January 9, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book offers harrowing accounts of some of the worst examples in history of man's inhumanity to man, documenting some of the most horrific genocides and mass murders in history.

It is difficult to digest in some parts , as a lot of it is very graphic , but if truly opens a window on some of history's real life horrors up to events very recent.

Events documented include the Mongol Hordes of Genghis Khan and their devastation of Central Asia and parts of Russia , the Auto Da Fe and the horrors and tortures of the Spanish Inquisition , Robespierre's Reign of Terror , King Leopold of Belgium's atrocities in the Congo , the murder of the Romanov family by the Bolsheviks in Russia in 1918 , which preceded the mass murder of 60 million people in the Soviet Union under the monsters Lenin and Stalin , the Amritsar massacre by the British of unarmed Indian protestors in 1919 , , the massacre by Stalin of 50 000 Polish officers in the Katyn Forest in 1940 , the liquidation of the Warsaw Gehetto by the Nazis in 1941 and the massacre at Babi Yar of 200 000 Jews in that same year, the killing fields of Cambodia in which the Marxist Khmer Rouge murdered over 2 million Cambodians , in the most gruesome ways imaginable , the gassing of the Kurds by modern day Hitler Saddam Hussein , the Lockerbie bombings in 1988 , the Tianmen Square Massacre n Beinjing , China in 1989 , and the holocaust in Rwanda in which over 1 million Tutsis and moderate Hutus where butchered.

The horrors documented in this book are extrememly descriptive and often hard to believe. It essentially poses more question than it answers. What drives man's brutality to his fellow human beings?

More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of over a 160 books, from serious political works such as The Iron Cage to lightweight comic romps such as Sex Lives of the Popes. Sex Lives of the Presidents got him on the Joan Rivers Show. He was hauled in front of a Senate Select Committee for The Bamboo Cage. And "Read this book." was the last line of the Washington Post's review of his book Takin' Back My Name: The Confessions of Ike Turner. So there is plenty for everyone to enjoy.
