Reviews - What do customers think about 21 Days to Baghdad: Photos and Dispatches from the Battlefield?
great pictures Jan 7, 2008
A well made book, full of magnificent photo shots of US forces in OIF. I think the photos are the best part of the book, because Time has not always been reflecting the reality of the American War On Terror.
"The Inside Story of How America Won the War Against Iraq" Mar 18, 2007
I have a copy of this and the photos and the story are great. The only difference is the cover.
Mine has the caption "The Inside Story of How America Won the War Against Iraq".
The top has the banner "WAR COMMEMORATIVE EDITION".
I don't see the different versions noted in the main bin or the used copy bins.
The downfall of Saddam Hussein. May 14, 2006
A nice little picture book about the War in Iraq. This book only explores the 2003 War that brought Saddam down. It does not cover the insurgentcy after the collaspe of Saddam's government. It covers the 21 days to bring Saddam down. As always, Time's pictures are without equal. There is not much meat in this book about the conflicts raging in both Iraq and the United States about starting the war.
If one wants to flip through the pages to learn about the 21 day campaign, this is an OK book. If one wants to find more about this conflict, you need to read elsewhere.
Contains high quality pictures and detailed information Oct 23, 2005
This is worth it for the price if you want to follow the events of the conflict. Many photos depicting the real events that happened on our Tv screens while it all happened. I enjoyed the book and keep it on my coffee table.
Definitely one to add to your personal library Jul 15, 2003
Talking about pictures being worth a thousand words! Every photo in the book I felt drew me in to imagining what it would have been like if I was the person behind the camera. I wouldn't recommend this book to someone who is looking for more of the technical "heavy duty" information on the war, i.e. tactics, troop movement, etc. It's more for the person who likes browsing through a book at their leisure especially picture books. The write-ups by the journalists are very interesting and do a great job of portraying what they and the soldiers experienced in the opening hours of the war and during it. I especially enjoyed the "Verbatim" sections that were scattered throughout the book. I am hoping that TIME might do a similar follow up book on the reconstruction of Iraq as my husband is currently over there with the 1st Armored Division assisting in the peace keeping processes.
