Overview

One of only a handful of reporters to cover the entire war in Iraq from Baghdad, Australia's most trusted foreign correspondent kept a daily diary. This collection documents the compelling human stories Paul McGeough witnessed in the heart of war-torn Baghdad and reveals the stresses and dangers faced daily by the reporters there. With a journalist's eye, he describes the deaths of innocents, cheap propaganda from both sides of the conflict, the American conquest of Baghdad, and the subsequent rampant looting. Providing unique insights into the life of a reporter behind enemy lines, these vignettes reveal the stress of the media's war, with colleagues in danger, dying, and fighting in daily battles with a regime that viewed them as human shields and potential hostages.
