Revolution day: the human story of the battle for Iraq

Front Cover
Viking, Mar 1, 2004 - History - 250 pages
"Throughout the war in Iraq millions of people turned to Rageh Omaar's BBC reports from Baghdad. Omaar was BBC television's main correspondent reporting from Iraq. He had watched the suffocation of Iraqi society after a quarter of a century of dictatorship and then, in March 2003, he witnessed the last desperate hours of peace before the bombs fell." "Writing from the heart of Baghdad, Omaar follows the war from its beginning to its aftermath: he describes the atmosphere among the people on the night the first bombs hit; the horror they felt as they watched their city burn; the anarchy and unforgiving heat that overwhelmed the country in the battle's wake. Revolution Day is a powerful and intimate account of a city and its people under siege, and of a conflict at the very centre of our world."--BOOK JACKET.
