Bad days in Basra

£8.99

Product description

Bad Days in Basra is the story of Synnot's time as Britain's most senior representative in Southern Iraq, trying to keep the region together as the rest of the country descended into murderous violence. By turns wryly comic, revealing and heart-breaking, it offers a never before seen glimpse into the high politics of the occupation. Shutting between the glided palaces of the Green Zone and the leaky outhouses which constituted Coalition HQ in Basra, Synnot had to negotiate the indifference of Paul Bremer, his boss, to what was going on outside Baghdad, the indecisiveness of his London masters and the brutal political realities of a country under occupation.
