About The Book
‘The image I have is a kid on a country lane on a Saturday afternoon herding his family cattle, meaning no harm to anybody and putting one step wrong. It’s one thing to die in combat, it’s one thing to die defending land, but it’s another thing to die tending cattle on a Saturday afternoon and we want a world where that doesn’t happen’ — Michael Ignatieff
During the twentieth century a landmine plague raged across the globe. It began on the battlefields of two world wars, it gathered momentum in Korea and Vietnam and then spread like wildfire throughout the developing world.
The Devil’s Gardens is the definitive story of the landmine. It is the story of the development and proliferation of a weapon of terror. It is also the story of suffering and devastation, and a worldwide crusade to put an end to the curse of landmines forever. The issues surrounding landmines and their continued use are controversial. Drawing on a wide range of distinguished interviewees and the authors’ first-hand experiences in severely mine-affected countries, The Devil’s Gardens look at all sides of the landmine story.
