Saddam Hussein and his Ba'athist Party have brutally oppressed the Kurds of northern Iraq; his systematic attempts to annihilate them included mass murders, gassing of entire Kurdish villages, torture, imprisonment, rape, and bombings. Justification for the 2003 invasion of Iraq will likely be subject to worldwide debate for years to come, but one fact remains clear: The war had a moral componentâto liberate millions from Saddam's totalitarian rule. For the Kurds of northern Iraq, there is no ambivalence about American involvement. The war brought them one step closer to freedom. Here is the first inside perspective on what it was like to endure the horrors of Saddam Hussein.In Hell is Over: Voices of the Kurds after Saddam, author Mike Tucker offers frank and evocative accounts of the Kurdish people, from veterans of the Kurdish uprising - the Revolution of 1961 - to members of the peshmerga who helped U.S. forces quickly take key northern cities. Hell is Over is a testimony to the anguish of political prisoners, survivors of chemical attacks, and victims of torture. Hell is Over is the moving narrative of a long-suffering nation, chillingly told one precious individual at a time.
