The only eyewitness account of the US-led war to topple the Iraqi President, Saddam Hussein. A day-by-day retelling from the battlefield by Satish Jacob, the only Indian correspondent in Baghdad. From Baghdad’s Hotel Palestine, Satish’s spirited reports were the only eyewitness accounts of the drama of those days on Indian television. They were also special in that his perception of the events differed significantly from that of the Western media more prone to accept uncritically the invading armies’ version of events. From Hotel Palestine, Satish Jacob writes of a nation devastated on a whim, and explains Iraq’s role in the Arab world, the complex relationships that divide the region’s Muslims, Christians and Jews. Above all, he applauds the courage of the Iraqis in this war of unequals, and shows us that while Saddam may be a loathsome monster for some, he is a nation-builder like Turkey’s Ataturk to others. Printed Pages: 240.
