Besieged
A Doctor's Story of Life and Death in Beirut
Dr. Chris Giannou

6" x 9" • 288 pages • b&w illus.
Available Options:

From October 1985 until January 1988, warring factions used everything from heavy artillery to sniper fire, pounded the tiny Palestinian refugee camp in West Beirut known as Shatila. Besieged is an account of simple courage and ingenuity, of human dignity in circumstances of war and deprivation, of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. During five months of fierce fighting, Dr. Giannou and his medical team performed hundreds of operations and 650 people who were seriously injured were saved.

Dr. Chris Giannou was born and raised in Toronto. He has served for eight years with the Palestine Red Crescent Society in Lebanon and spent over twenty years living, studying and working in the Third World.
