On 11 July 1995 the Bosnian Serbs captured the enclave Srebrenica.
Thousands were executed. Claims were made that Western intelligence
agencies had spectacular foreknowledge about the attack. But was this
true? Or was it an intelligence failure?

This book tries to answer these questions presenting in as much detail as possible
the intelligence collected by the Western services in Bosnia. The author
was granted full access to the top-secret archives of the Dutch services
and the still classified UN archives. Foreign intelligence services gave
him confidential briefings. The author spoke with more than 100 intelligence
officials from various countries.
