Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. At the beginning of the Iraq war, Daily Telegraph journalist Poole was the only Brit embedded with U.S. troops, accompanying them on their three week mission into Baghdad (chronicled in his 2003 title Black Knights). Haunted, Poole returned to Iraq in 2004 and stayed through 2007, after most journalists had already decamped. The new situation he faces is, in his words, "really bad," a population of 7 million "reduced to barbarism." It doesn't take long for the violence to make a personal impact; while Poole's new editor in London demands positive spin, the brother-in-law of Poole's friend and translator is kidnapped, never to be seen again. The differences a few years make are incredible: camping with troops pre-invasion, Poole was upbeat, happy with his "massive story"; by the time he left the "iconic reporter's hotel" Hamra, once a hub of activity, food, camaraderie and entertainment, it was the bombed-out center of a Baghdad "war cemetery." Poole is a fascinating narrator, chronicling his own disillusionment alongside the stories of his Iraqi friends and the deteriorating state of the nation. Hard to put down, this hard-hitting but deeply compassionate memoir showcases an expert reporter pushing his skill and humanity to their limits. 8 color plates and maps. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
