This is a fascinating read! I loved the section about Saddam Hussein's son Uday's pet cheetahs and other exotic animals that were abandoned in the palace and needed care. This book covers the humanitarian efforts of soldiers, Iraqi citizens, and volunteers, historical information about the region, as well as facts about the animals rescued in the aftermath of the Iraqi war.
