Ambitious yet ruthless, Saddam Hussein maintained control of Iraq for over two decades by employing terror tactics and violating human rights. This complex leader inspired fanatical devotion as well as international condemnation.
"...Hussein is portrayed as a conniving and ruthless dictator who masterminded his own ascent to power in Iraq; the book includes his overthrow, but ends before his capture...numerous source notes and substantial research, as well as black-and-white (sometimes graphic) photos, maps, and reproductions."
