Reviews: The Financial Times, Victory at all Costs . Sri Lanka Media Watch, Regrettably, in articulating this narrative, Harrison’s book omits key facts, offers convenient half-truths and contains blatant falsehoods. The contents, claims and conclusions are so mired in propaganda as to be unusable to anyone looking for an objective and accurate account of the events at the end of the war . The Dawn, The general level of honesty of those attacking Sri Lanka is indeed shocking, and Frances is perhaps the most hysterical of those currently on the warpath against Sri Lanka . The Observer, Survivors of the bloody last months of Sri Lanka's civil war tell a story of injustice and horror that we cannot continue to ignore.  Feature in the National Post: "It’s essential that the rest of the world open its eyes to the country’s bloody deeds."  Review in Monsoon Journal: "An extraordinary book brilliantly crafted on stories from the survivors of the horrible war in Sri Lanka."  The Hindu: Untold Stories, Unseen War  The Financial Express, An Account of Victory from the Perspective of the Defeated . The Hindu Chennai, Killings at End Stage of Lanka Civil War Unprecedented .
