The Iraq War: As Witnessed by the Correspondents and Photographers of United Press International

The Iraq War: As Witnessed by the Correspondents and Photographers of United Press International Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Washington Post publisher Phillip Graham famously remarked that “journalists write the first rough draft of history.” Martin Walker, United Press Internationals chief diplomatic correspondent, has collected some of the best writing on the events leading up to the Iraq War, detailed descriptions of combat operations of each day of the war, and firsthand accounts of the conflicts immediate aftermath. Walker presents the war precisely as it was reported by the world-renowned UPI correspondents. Illustrated with world-class photojournalism, this volume will preserve forever the drama of this historic undertaking.

Book News Annotation:

Martin Walker, chief international correspondent for United Press International, gathers together articles penned by himself and others for the news service, drawing a portrait of the invasion of Iraq by the United States that largely concentrates on "Coalition" military activities, but does include a significant amount of analysis, although little is devoted to dissecting the increasingly threadbare justifications for the war. Those who followed the war through UPI's dispatches will not be surprised by the generally celebratory tone of the embedded press, but it should be noted that Walker does make an effort to include a few dissenting voices. Distributed by Books International.
