Earphones Award Winner

History • 20 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

This comprehensive, detailed, and fascinating account of the historical, religious, and political origins of Iraq and the Iraq War is made more immediate by the author’s familiarity with the region. The work includes a history of American foreign policy there and traces the present war from Desert Storm. The factual material is enlivened by personal interviews and anecdotes of the author’s encounters with Iraqis, both in and out of the country. Richard Poe does a superb narration of the long and complex book, reading with enthusiasm, emotion, and a sense of drama. He conveys an unwavering interest in the material, engaging listeners in the events as they unfold. This is required listening for anyone who wants a clearer understanding of the U.S. presence in Iraq. S.S.R.
