Review quote

"Every war brings forth one perfect book . . . Now we have "The Immaculate Invasion", the masterpiece of the 1994 U.S. assault on and occupation of Haiti." --"Chicago Tribune""A bitter, funny, engrossing adventure between the mysteries and comedy of the American military machine and the infinite suffering of Haiti." --Herbert Gold, "San Francisco Chronicle""An unforgettable mixture of hard journalism and sharp commentary that captures much of the absurdity and futility of the 1994 American-led U.N. invasion of Haiti." --Kenneth Maxwell, "Foreign Affairs""An extraordinary book about an extraordinary event. . . I felt transported to Haiti. I could hear it. I could smell it. At moments I felt moved almost to tears, only to find myself, a page or two later, laughing out loud." --Tracy Kiddershow more
