With evidence from both family members, servants and staff, "Saddam: The Secret Life" is unique in its representation of this bizarre and secretive world.Coughlin recounts the last few months of Saddam's reign and his eventual capture by American forces. And in a compelling new chapter, Coughlin recounts the chaos of Saddam's trial and his subsequent execution. Insightful, penetrating and shocking, Con Coughlin has written the defining biography of one of the most dangerous men of the last two decades.
