Pity the Nation will rank among the classics of war in our time, both as an historical document and as an eye-witness testament to human savagery. This epic account of the Lebanon conflict has now been brought up to date. In a new epilogue, Fisk, himself often at risk from the kidnappers of the warring factions, considers the rise and fall of General Aoun, the assassination of President Moawad, and the impact of the Gulf War on events inBeirut. He also recalls the release of the Western hostages, and presents unique information in the case of his friend, Terry Anderson.
