Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In February 2011, Andrei Netto, a reporter for O Estado de São Paulo , one of Brazils main newspapers, traveled without permission into a region of Libya controlled by the regime, aiming to cover the first armed revolution of the Arab Spring. One of the first foreigners to reveal to the world the extent of the uprisings, he spoke to hundreds of Libyans, including many of the students, shopkeepers, doctors, teachers, and intellectuals who armed themselves with rifles, grenades, and anti-aircraft guns to attack the armored vehicles of an illegitimate regime responsible for 42 years of torture, murder, and terrorism. This is their story. A unique and memorable account of a revolutionary war, Bringing Down Gaddafi provides previously unpublished information about the Libyan conflict, including the circumstances of Gaddafis death, behind the scenes diplomacy at the UN Security Council, and the supply of weapons to the Libyan rebels from abroad. Andrei Nettos testimony alerts the world to the atrocities committed by both sides in the conflict ended with Muammar Gaddafis summary execution on the outskirts of his home city. Netto provides a powerful journalistic narrative with the spirit of a road movie and the elements of suspense worthy of a thriller.

Synopsis:

As told by participants in the Libyan revolution and the assassination of Gaddafi, a riveting look at how decades of silence suddenly erupted against the dictator
