Julian Borger recounts the remarkable and previously untold story of a massive manhunt that targeted 161 individuals wanted for war crimes in connection with the Balkan conflicts of the 1990s. During that violent period, the term “ethnic cleansing” emerged as a kind of euphemism for the wholesale slaughter that once again was occurring in the heart of Europe. Those responsible for this brutality were identified and indicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, a special court in The Hague created in 1993 by the United Nations. By 2011, all 161 of those indicted had been either captured or killed or had surrendered or committed suicide. Through much dogged reporting, Borger, an experienced British journalist, pieced together how the secretive manhunt managed to succeed.
