Baghdad Bulletin: The Real Story of the War in Iraq – Reporting from Beyond the Green Zone

By

University of Michigan Press 156pp £15 order from our bookshop

Baghdad Bulletin is the personal account of a 22-year-old graduate of the University of Michigan who embarked on a quixotic mission to start up an English-language news magazine in Iraq shortly after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003. The book consists of a diary-like series of anecdotes about life in Iraq as author David Enders and a small team of graduates-cum-journalists strive to start up and run the bi-monthly Baghdad Bulletin. It survived from July to September 2003 before running out of money.
