I like this book which showed the imprisonment, trial and execution of Saddam Hassan from the perspective of the 12 U.S soldiers assigned to guard him during this time period with the back drop of the Iraq invasion.
It was an amazing book to me because you see the human side of Saddam a narcissist psychopath but who developed a bilateral friendship with these guards. A man who could kill his own people but save the crusts from his breakfast to feed the birds at the palace which became his prison. I know it sounds crazy but You kind of end up being inspired by Saddam Hassan in a way because of his life style and the relationship with these guards during this time period. The author takes you right up to, the point of and the time after his execution almost as if you are walking the steps of the gallows with him. It was interesting to me as to the way he died and the way he lived as well as his outlook on life during this time period.
I would highly recommend the book. It's an original.
