Baghdad was burning.

With these words, Ambassador L. Paul Jerry Bremer begins his gripping memoir of 14 danger-filled months as America's proconsul in Iraq. My Year in Iraq is the only senior insider's perspective on the crucial period following the collapse of Saddam Hussein's regime. In vivid, dramatic detail, Bremer reveals the previously hidden struggles among Iraqi politicians and America's leaders, taking us from the ancient lanes in the holy city of Najaf to the White House Situation Room and the Pentagon E-Ring.

His memoir carries the listener behind closed doors in Baghdad during hammer-and-tongs negotiations with emerging Iraqi leaders as they struggle to forge the democratic institutions vital to Iraq's future of hope. He describes his private meetings with President Bush and his admiration for the president's firm wartime leadership. And we witness heated sessions among members of America's National Security Council, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, and Condoleezza Rice, as Bremer labors to realize the vision he and President Bush share of a free and democratic New Iraq. He admires the selfless and courageous work of thousands of American servicemen and women and civilians in Iraq.

My Year in Iraq is required listening for all those interested in the real story of how America responded to its gravest recent overseas crisis. Download and start listening now!
