The war in Libya as seen from the inside—both in the field and in world capitals—by key players in Libya, France, and other countries.
After 30 years of struggle in sites of strife and conflict around the world, Bernard-Henri Lévy takes us to Libya, leading us in the footsteps of Malraux, Hemingway, the Free French forces of Leclerc’s 2d Armored Division, and Lévy himself.
Six months of extraordinary drama. Six months of a war of liberation that ended with the fall of one of the longest-running and most implacable dictatorships of modern times. A war with a beginning—but perhaps not yet an end.
A film, if you will, about the making of a war.
