Overview

Georges Sada was one of Saddam's top generals and foremost military advisors. A truth-teller in a government that made the truth dangerous. A devout Christian in a Muslim country. And a man who would stand up for what was right―even at the risk of his own life.

In this eye-opening exposé, General Sada shares his bizarre yet amazing journey as an insider to one of history's most sinister regimes. He also, for the first time, reveals the disturbing truth about Saddam's plots to destroy Israel, hide weapons of mass destruction and overtake the Arab world. As an eye witness to history, Sada paints a painfully truthful picture of Hussein and his country that is at once personal and alarming, truthful and compelling, candid and sobering. It is a story guaranteed to send shock waves around the world.

He was Saddam Hussein's top military advisor . . . and a truth-teller in a regime where truth was relative. He was also a devout Christian in an anti-Christian country. For the first time, the author shares his amazing journey and speaks of the military secrets he was asked to keep.

    The TRUTH about WMD

    I bought the book in January 2006 and read it in two days. It is a fascinating story about where the WMD's went to, how they got there, and what happened after. I heard Mr. Sada speak in November 2006 at our local church and he was painfully honest about the war and what it has meant to his country. BUY this book for the truth.

    Highly recommended.

    Eye opening. Well written. Some of Sada's commentary is publicly available, but not picked up by our news media. Surprise, Surprise, Surprised!!!

    Inspiring!

    Iraqi General Georges Sada is truly one to admire. His courage and faith are inspiring to read. His willingness to share some of his most private and difficult moments throughout his time with Sadam Hussein are captivating and inspirational of how a man of great faith handles himself in the darkest of moments. This book gave me a better insight into the politics and voices of the other side. His christian faith is fascinating to read about as well as his words of knowledge in his military tactics. I simply do not get tired of this book and have read it about four times since taking it from my fathers library. I highly reccomend this book to all!

    A book of GREAT faith

    Hey, This is one of the most insightful books I¿ve read in a long time and I read a lot of books. The book is list as an exposure of saddam¿s secrets, AND THAT IT IS! However, to me the MAIN story in General Sada¿s book is how this MAN applies his Christian faith throughout his life. He is not one of us that states I will do God¿s will and He will protect me. He states that he knew God expected him to do what is right and he would do it even if it meant he would die. He did not claim the easy way out. If I ever meet him there are three things I would like to say to him: You¿ve got to have a big set of brass ones. Your faith reminds me of Daniel in the Lion¿s Den. And last Thanks for writing the book. It took real courage!

    Insightful and optimistic

    General Sada tells a brief history of Iraq through his eyes, and his relationship with the former dictator of Iraq. He sometimes overemphasizes his Christian background and his commitment to tell the truth. While I personally believe him, many people will only see General Sada as a man with an agenda. His accounts of UN Corruption and the real personality of Saddam Hussein should be considered when one forms an opinion about the current state of affairs. This man served under the dictator, as a General, an Assyrian Christian, told Saddam himself that his military advisors were making him believe that their military capabilities were greater than they were. Georges Sada said what he thought was accurate at the risk of his life. An extraordinary man indeed.

    An Eye Opening Read

    This book is a must read for all those convinvinced that the US had no business invading Iraq and deposing Saddam Hussein. Saddam's murderous government, his depraved sons, wars of aggression, massacres of Iraqi citizens and his secret plots are all revealed here by an Iraqi Airforce general who answered to Saddam. An insiders account of one of history's most brutal dictatorships, and Saddam's dreams of conquest and glory. The author's account tends to be repetitive at times, but this book refutes once and for all the notion that the world is not better off with Saddam out of power, and on trial for his life.

    Interesting facts

    Interesting facts about the pre -occupation erra, also check 'Arab Voices Speak to American Hearts' by Samar Dahmash Jarrah a few weeks ago and I was facscinated by the facts that I read from ordinary Arab citizens. As an American it made me change the way I view Arabs (Muslims and Christians) in the Middle East and it also made me understand more about our foreign policy and Middle East politics.
