Saddam: The Secret Life

Author(s): Con Coughlin


The true story behind one of the most brutal, tyrannical and dictatorial leaders of modern times. Since becoming President of Iraq in 1979, Saddam Hussein has systematically terrorised a nation, yet little is really known of the inner circle of his regime. In Saddam, Con Coughlin takes us right to the heart of the Iraqi dictatorship. Using brilliant research, eyewitness accounts and information from some of Hussein's most trusted advisors, Coughlin unravels the complex nature of Saddam's regime. For the first time, Saddam also affords us a glimpse of the turbulent and often violent nature of Hussein's private and family life. This world behind the closed doors of his palace is the key to the man and to his regime, illuminating his complex and contradictory personality. From intrigue to espionage, from jealousy to murder, this important biography captures Saddam Hussein like never before. This is the defining work on one of the world's most dangerous men.
