“I hope many people will read this book and note the futility of war and perhaps do something about it; all my life I have cherished this hope in vain, but we must not stop.” —Mary Wesley, author of Harnessing Peacocks and A Sensible Life
“Something of what sanctions mean for ordinary Iraqis. . .records the day-to-day struggle for survival.” —Times Literary Supplement
“Insouciant, charming and witty, with much black humour. Al-Radi writes poignantly.” —The Independent (London)

Must-read to understand what war does to people and a country. The news is about the soldiers and the battles; not about the people whose city/country is overrun by the war. This is a very matter of fact diary telling what the family did to survive Desert Storm One. It is full of dignity and self-respect; no self-pity or 'why meing'. You will admire and respect the author who is also a talented artist.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
