Forty years ago, Gordon Slaven currently Director of Global Partnerships in New York City for the British Council was a young British activist volunteering to provide humanitarian aid in what was then Eastern Pakistan during what became known as the Bangladesh Liberation War.

What happened to him was traumatic and important. Slaven is spending the next few months recording what happened to him as he experienced it during the months of August through December 1971. It's a pretty engrossing read so far and and important reminder of not-so-distant history of the human race on this tiny blue planet.
