Experience one of the most dramatic events of our time
Operation Iraqi Freedom commanded the interest and ignited the passions of people of every political stripe around the world. The War in Iraq, which draws on the work of dozens of international photographers -- many of whom risked their lives to get the shot -- collects 250 of the most compelling images taken during the conflict.
From the heroes braving desert combat to the demonstrations of support and protest around the world, from the eerie and blinding sandstorms of the Iraqi desert to the toppling of the statue of Saddam Hussein in Baghdad -- here are the unforgettable images that tell the story, including many that have never been published before. The result is a historic collection, a spectacular visual chronicle of every aspect of the first full-scale war of the twenty-first century: at once a journalistic record of the realities of battle, and a vivid and eye-opening portrait of the cultural turmoil -- and, in many quarters, jubilation -- that followed the fall of Saddam.
Capturing the dramatic impact of the war at every scale, from the epic to the intimate, The War in Iraq offers a vivid window onto Operation Iraqi Freedom in all its tragedy and triumph -- and a sterling showcase for the talented photographers who braved the battle in pursuit of truth.
