Regardless of your political outlook or persuasion, Christopher Hitchens provides ample narrative to support his indictment of Henry Kissinger's character and his decisions which Hitchens describes as "war crimes".
This is a one-sided account that Henry Kissinger haters will LOVE and Kissinger defenders will DESPISE. So if you do not want to hear a scathing attack on Henry Kissinger, then do NOT buy this book!
Something the Kissinger haters, the Kissinger defenders, and the open-minded should all consider is the magnitude of defamation Hitchens heaps on Kissinger. Hitchens' attack is scathing throughout. Would an innocent public servant allow Hitchens' charges to go unchallenged without filing a lawsuit and make Hitchens pay for his lies? This book was published nearly a decade before Hitchens' death and no lawsuit was ever filed.
Hitchen's charges may never be proven in a court of law, but I was persuaded by Hitchen's argument and enjoyed the book.

Hitchens makes powerful accusations, but I found his case hurt by an uncompelling showcase of Kissinger's motives. To accept the given motives as the reasons for such heinous acts is a thorny swallow. The narrator was excellent, especially with foreign pronunciations.
