The Fall of Baghdad Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For every great historical event, there is seemingly always one reporter whose eyewitness accounts are infused with such power and literary impact that they become joined with the subject in our minds. Widely considered the on-the-ground authority by both journalists and news sources, Jon Lee Anderso‛s dispatches out of Baghdad for the New Yorker were hailed as the best writing published anywhere on the war. The Fall of Baghdad is a masterpiece of literary reportage about the experience of ordinary Iraqis living through the endgame of the Saddam Hussein regime, its violent fall, and the troubled American occupation. In channeling a tragedy of epic dimensions through the stories of real people caught up in the whirlwind of history, Jon Lee Anderson has written a book of timeless significance.

Synopsis:

Channeling a tragedy of epic dimensions through the stories of real people, the author reports on the experience of ordinary Iraqis living through the endgame of the Saddam Hussein regime, its fall, and the troubled American occupation.
