Description

In this long piece Bowden offers an in-depth profile of Saddam Hussein. He reveals the kind of books -Mario Puzo's 'The Godfather' series- and films -'The day of the Jackal'- he enjoys. The report is structured in four parts that analyze Hussein's personality -with particular attention to his ambition and cruelty- and goals. Interesting details about the now former leader of Iraq are revealed, some better known than others, such as the fact he never sleeps in the same place, or that he "has a particular passion for Arabic history and military history."
