In 1921, a small group of survivors of the Armenian Genocide banded together to form one of the most effective assassination squads in history, tracking down and assassinating former Turkish leaders. In Operation Nemesis: The Assassination Plot that Avenged the Armenian Genocide, actor, playwright, and novelist of Armenian descent Eric Bogosian chronicles this group as well as the history and context that led to their creation.
