The Rape of Kuwait is the first book written by Jean Sasson. This is truly the very best book ever written about the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, otherwise known as the Gulf War. Jean Sasson was granted unprecedented access inside Kuwait to research and write her book, and even traveled on the freedom flight with American soldiers. The book tells many tragic and true firsthand stories about how the lives of many people were ripped and torn asunder after Kuwait was invaded by Iraq. Also included in the book are many exclusive pictures. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that is studying the Middle East, and in particular the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq in 1990. I would also recommend Jean Sasson's book Yasmeena's Choice. This is somewhat of a follow-up to The Rape of Kuwait, but it concentrates more on just one person. It was researched at the same time as The Rape of Kuwait, but the author wanted to protect Yasmeena's privacy and it was much too shocking to publish at the time so it was not published until just last year. I would highly recommend reading Yasmeena's Choice as a companion to The Rape of Kuwait.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
