We have read much about the allied 'precision bombing' in the 1991 Gulf War with Iraq and even now the military uses terms like 'clean' war with reference to any future attack on Baghdad. However, the truth is more painful and in Baghdad Diaries Nuha al-Radi lays bare these truths. Life under continuous bombing becomes unbelievably primitive and for the Iraqi people who suffered the noise, the dirt, the danger, and the despair it was almost a return to a medieval existence. This is a unique testimony of the facts of 'precision bombing' by a witness who can express them sensitively and with a clear memory.
