This book tells the story of the war between the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) and the Government of Sri Lanka in the context of the wider political conflict which began in 1956, with the introduction of Sinhala as the official language of the island. In January 2008, the FBI ranked the LTTE as the world's deadliest terrorist organization outranking even Al Qaeda. Yet by May 2009, the LTTE military organization lay completely annihilated by President Mahinda Rajapaksha's government. At the center of it all, coordinating the war effort with the armed forces, stood the President's brother and Defence Secretary, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa - soldier turned IT professional turned public servant. This is the story of how a small island nation turned the tide after a 30 year war, with a terrorist organization which not only had armed militants but also an air force and navy wing. It is the first time in recent history where a terrorist organization was eliminated and how it happened.
