Miranda Sawyer • The Guardian Jun 26, 2021

"The opening episode, about the Yugoslav wars, had the clever, interested Deborah Frances-White asking the questions, and since then I’ve been dipping in and out. With neat production by Matt Hill, the time flew by, and by the end we understood that Syria is not a civil war but an international one, in which Turkey, Iran, Russia, the Kurds, Hezbollah and Isis all have interests."
