Used book, 258 pages. Cover worn and pages yellowed, but still in good condition. This book is both a telling eye-witness account of action in the front line, and an accurate assessment of the vital importance of the invasion in a wider context. O'Shaughnessy traces the causes of the war through Grenada's colonial past, its indepencence in 1974, and the rise and fall of the revolutionary New Jewel Movement. He explains the roles of the USA, USSR, Britain and Cuba, and unravels the diplomatic intrigues surrounding the invasion as well as the consequences of this sudden and direct intervention for vulnerable non-aligned states elsewhere.
