Book Review: Armenian Genocide (And if They Had Lied To Us): Reflections on the Turkish-Armenian Tragedy
by Yves Bénard

The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, June 28th 1914, caused a great stir. In less than a month, Europe and Japan entered the war. Turkey is assailed by the Russians, the Armenian deserters, the British, the French, the Greeks, the Italians and the Australians.

All the Turks were drafted. Only the elderly, the women and children, remained in towns and villages. The Armenian militias had been waiting for this moment to implement their "extermination" plan aiming to obtain the "Great Armenia". Driven by a murderous frenzy, they indulged in barbarous acts of indescribable cruelty, over 500,000 victims were raped, disembowelled, crucified, slaughtered, mutilated, burned or buried, and the villages burned.

The author brings to light this dark page of the Turkish-Armenian tragedy with documents that bring a completely new and unexpected look on the Turkish-Armenian affair.

Nowadays, only historians and totally impartial experts should provide an answer to the question "Are the Ottomans guilty or not of a genocide? ".

Besides, French politicians instead of substituting the historians should devote all their energy to try to get millions of French out of the catastrophic situation in which they are. . . .
