"Joseph O'Neill's grandfathers - one Turkish, one Irish - were both imprisoned for suspected subversion during the Second World War. The Irish grandfather, a handsome rogue from a family of small farmers, was an active member of the IRA. O'Neill's other grandfather, a debonair hotelier from the tiny and threatened Turkish Christian minority, was interned by the British in Palestine on suspicion of being an Axis spy. With intellect, compassion, and grace, O'Neill sets the stories of these individuals against the history of the last century's most inhuman events. "--Book cover.

Ironic and ultimately fascinating, O'Neill surprises the reader with a really unexpected twist at the end of this work. I was really enlightened, and it helped to know that he has a legal background since he really presents a CASE in this book.
Really DOUBLY educational!
