Publisher's Summary

The gripping untold story of The International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia and how the perpetrators of Balkan war crimes were captured by the most successful manhunt in history.

Written with a thrilling narrative pull, The Butcher's Trail chronicles the pursuit and capture of the Balkan war criminals indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal in The Hague. Borger recounts how Radovan Karadžic and Ratko Mladic - both now on trial in The Hague - were finally tracked down and describes the intrigue behind the arrest of Slobodan Milosevic, the Yugoslav president who became the first head of state to stand before an international tribunal for crimes perpetrated in a time of war.

Based on interviews with former special forces soldiers, intelligence officials, and investigators from a dozen countries - most speaking about their involvement for the first time - this book reconstructs a 14-year manhunt carried out almost entirely in secret. Indicting the worst war criminals that Europe had known since the Nazi era, the ICTY ultimately accounted for all 161 suspects on its wanted list, a feat never before achieved in political and military history.

    What did you love best about The Butcher's Trail?

    This is a great narrative of a tragic period in Balkan history. Solid research and reporting is woven into a story that gives a glimpse into the twisted minds that were responsible for genocide.


    Have you listened to any of Paul Hodgson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Paul Hodgson's narration matched the story perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this one.
