The capture of Saddam Hussein is the defining event for this generation's military. Action-packed and controversial, "Hunting Down Saddam" teems with inside information. Robin Moore gets the real story from these fighting men as only he can.
Doris Kearns Goodwin calls "Hunting Down Saddam," "A fast and furious read . . . when the historians try to put together the real facts of the two wars the U. S. has fought since September 11, 2001 this book will be a valuable contribution to their research."
