Preserved in it's original diary form, Don't Look Back in Anger is one woman's true account of her experience as a human shield in Saddam Hussein's desperate attempt's to avoid a military response to his invasion of Kuwait in 1990.
After a number of agonisingly tense days waiting in the hotel where Chris worked, first Chris and then Caroline were seized by the Iraqi forces and brought at gunpoint to Iraq, where they would spend the next few months being shuffled between military and chemical installations. Conditions were appalling, and all the hostages, who were from many different Western countries, suffered not just physically but also mentally as they were exposed to filth, disease, uncertainty and the daily fear of imminent execution.
Years later, when hostilities returned to the Arab Gulf, where Caroline has made her home, the fear, and painful memories of that dreadful time returned to haunt her, and prompted her to revisit her diaries and present them in a book format:
Don't Look Back in Anger.

This book is definetely for people who like thrilling, gripping and page turning books. I wouldn't only recommend this to people that enjoy real life drama but I think that everyone would enjoy this book. It is about two people and some others that are taken from Kuwait to Iraq thinking they would die being held hostage. Every time I went to put the book down something interesting and gripping happened so I kept on reading. It is written in such a way that I felt I was actually there. Anyway i'm not going to tell you the whole tale, so if you're really interested then I suggest you read it! It's only the BEST! Jan
