Read full description of the books War Journal: My Five Years In Iraq:An outstanding account of reporting in Iraq. It comes off as being honest, and critical, and forthright about events in the country. He does not seem to have written the typical breast-beating memoir, but a frank account. Some of the events he describes are horrific and heartrending (a father allowing his daughter to die at the hands of her kidnappers because she was raped; a child stuffed and roasted in order to send a message to his parents and the Shiite community; etc). Not a book for the squeamish. I think he correctly critiques the conservative mouthpieces who criticized the press for not sending back feel-good stories. This was the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time, and we will pay for it financially and diplomatically for decades. This would be a good book for anyone who thinks they might want to report from such an area.
