Battle-hardened soldier Maj. Kamal Gunaratne, who has shed his Army uniform which he wore for 35 years, yesterday urged political leaders of the country to maintain the hard-earned peace. In an exclusive interview with the Daily FT, he explained the historical failures that led the LTTE to become a stronger fighting force, the motive of writing of his memoir, the downfall of the LTTE, transforming the SLA to a victorious Army, allegations on human rights abuses and the last days of the final battle. Gunaratne said that for the LTTE to make a comeback with the same vigour it needed a leader like Prabhakaran, who was an equally committed, dedicated, disciplined and ruthless terrorist leader. A: Defeating the LTTE was a very difficult task for the armed forces, which had made a lot of sacrifices in the last Eelam war.

It was written by former Major General Kamal Gunaratne. The book was released on 6 September , a day after Gunaratne's retirement. The Sinhala and English versions of the book were released on the same day. It covers several incidents that occurred during the Sri Lankan Civil War , including the killing of Velupillai Prabhakaran. According to Mangala Samaraweera , the foreign minister of Sri Lanka, it is filled with inaccuracies and contradictions and was soon used by Pro-LTTE groups and even circulated in Geneva Human Rights Council sessions as it contains claims of war crimes by the Government. Further the book states that Prabhakaran was wearing military camouflaged of the LTTE and had his LTTE identity card and dog tag when the body was brought before him even though in in an interview he claimed that the body was found in civilian clothing and it was his troops who dressed Prabhakaran in LTTE military uniform.
