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.

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

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!

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.

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.

It's not the best-written book in the world; it reads as though it were translated, and not translated very well. There's also a cultural approach that doesn't come across well in the whole structure of the book: it's very elliptical, meaning that Sada starts on a subject, wanders off to others further out and then finally loops back around to where he started.The value herein are the hidden gems of what Sada saw about Saddam and Iraq up close and personal, or what he knows from people he's met. Those are truly game-changers and shed a lot of light on how horrific Saddam really was, and an equal amount of light on how badly Bush lost the PR war.

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!

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.
