Throughout the war in Iraq millions of people turned to Rageh Omaar's BBC reports from Baghdad. To this terrifying and controversial conflict Omaar brought a rare, and utterly compelling perspective. Revolution Day is written from the heart of Baghdad and follows the war from its beginning to its aftermath: Omaar describes the atmosphere among its people on the night before the bombs fell; the overwhelming fear evoked by the sounds of nightly bombardment; the city's response to the most earth-shattering of experiences, a city that had been suffocated by a dictator and ripped apart by war. Revolution Day is a unique and beautifully written account of a war at the centre of modern politics that will be read by generations of readers for many years to come.
