About the Book -- Dawn Over Baghdad

Zinsmeister takes the reader into Iraq's urban neighborhoods, rural villages, and guerrilla snake pits, and shows exactly how young American soldiers are quietly but inexorably choking off a terrorist insurrection and planting the seeds of a dramatically different Iraq. Gripping, up-to-the-minute report on America’s most urgent national struggle today, as seen through the eyes of the U.S. servicemen and Iraqis who are trying to make a new country out of the most dangerous place in the world.

Early in 2004 Karl Zinsmeister spent several weeks with U.S. soldiers in the most dangerous parts of the Sunni Triangle. He participated in raids against insurgents and watched the soldiers engage in daily diplomacy with ordinary Iraqis trying to put their lives back together. Dawn Over Bagdad is the result of that trip—a journey through Iraq’s urban neighborhoods, rural villages, and guerrilla snake pits. In making this trip, Zinsmeister talks with the GIs and their commanders at an intimate gut-level and shows exactly how young American soldiers are dealing with a terrorist insurrection and planting the seeds of a democracy.

In the spring of 2005, Zinsmeister returned to Iraq for another extended period of reporting shortly after the historic elections there made the purple dye-stained finger a symbol of hope. This is truly "the other side of the story" to the gloomy picture of America’s presence in this war zone so often painted by the mainstream media.
