The Iraq War Blog: An Iraqi Family's Inside View of the First Year of the Occupation by Faiza Al-Araji, Raed Jarrar, Khalid Jarrar
George W. Bush invaded Iraq, a sovereign nation that had never attacked the US, on March 19, 2003. Much of what occurred inside Iraq was not covered by the US media. The Jarrars, a family living in Baghdad, explore through their words how their lives were affected as the American military and coalition allies devastated the city. They persevered through night attacks and daytime missile strikes that oftentimes wreaked destruction to their home by blowing doors off hinges and breaking windows. The Jarrar family, while chronicling their daily lives amid the destruction, also provides descriptive analyses of the political climate that resulted from the American occupation of the country.
