Summary

Summary

"Washington Post" publisher Phillip Graham famously remarked that "journalists write the first rough draft of history." Martin Walker, United Press International's chief diplomatic correspondent, has collected some of the best writing on the events leading up to the Iraq War, detailed descriptions of combat operations of each day of the war, and firsthand accounts of the conflict's immediate aftermath. Walker presents the war precisely as it was reported by the world-renowned UPI correspondents. Illustrated with world-class photojournalism, this volume will preserve forever the drama of this historic undertaking.
