San Francisco Encounter Books 2004 1594030901 / 9781594030901 First Paperback Edition Softcover Very Good 
Xxxii, 277 pages, 16 plates, pictorial wrappers, very good. First paperback edition. From the back cover: "Early in 2004, Karl Zinsmeister spent several weeks with U. S. Soldiers in the most dangerous parts of the Sunni Triangle. He participated in raids against insurgents and watched the soldiers engage in daily diplomacy with ordinary Iraqis trying to put their lives back together. Dawn Over Baghdad is the result of that trip . . . In the spring of 2005, Zinsmeister returned to Iraq for another extended period of reporting shortly after the historic elections there made the purple dye-stained finger a symbol of hope. The new material he has added to this edition is hopeful too and in distinct contrast to the gloomy picture of America's presence in this war zone so often painted by the mainstream media. The other side of the story, Dawn Over Baghdad is a gripping, up-to-the-minute report on America's most urgent national struggle, as seen thought the eyes of the U. S. Servicemen and Iraqis who are trying to make a new country out of the most dangerous place in the world. " ; 277 pages
