Reporting Iraq: An Oral History of the War by the Journalists Who Covered It

by Mike Hoyt (Editor), John Palattella (Editor), Columbia Journalism Review (Editor)

4.5 Stars

A view of the war (and how it's been reported) straight from journalists in Iraq. Because it is an oral history, the book is not exactly easy to read (which is the only reason that it didn't get 5 stars from me). We often write differently than we talk, don't we? But, it still offers an insight that is both scary and disheartening. The pictures alone moved me beyond tears. Well worth the read.
