    • Synopsis
    • The war in Libya as seen from the inside: both on the scene and as discussed by world politicians.
      After thirty years of chasing wars and conflicts, Bernard-Henri Lévy takes us along for a journey reminiscent of Malraux and
      Hemingway, though retaining a style all his own.
      Six-months of exceptional dramaturgy. Six months of a war for freedom, resulting in the fall of one of the longest, most relentless dictatorships of modern time.
      A war with a beginning but perhaps no end. The making of a war.
