3.0 out of 5 stars A good but rushed novel
I did find this to be a rather rushed account with some typing errors. Nonetheless - still a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rape of Kuwait, 17 Aug. 2011
This review is from: The Rape of Kuwait: The True Story of Iraqi Atrocities Against a Civilian Population (Paperback)
As heart breaking as this invasion was, and the plunder and rape of Kuwaiti citizens was grotest in a monstorus scale comitted by their fellow Arabs cannot be justified, and Jean Sassoon has presented a graet exposure worthy of her reputation as a writer. However the invasion of Kuwait liberated hundreds of foriegn domestic servents who were trapped in their embassies in Kuwait because these runaway maids were denied repatiation by the Kuwaiti authorities prior to the Iraqi invasion. These runaway maids and servants may have been taken to Iraq initially as would be hostages but were at least repatriated by the Iraqi's when they relised they were of no value as hostages. The Kuwaitis have a poor human rights record and like their Saudi counterparts are guilty of modern day slavery where foriegn domestic servants have no protection against their masters. I have always admired Jean Sassoons's exposures of human rights abuses in Saudi Arabia and the courage of Princess Sultana in her books, I would look foward to an investigation of the lives of those who are sold into servitude and the atrocities committed on them and am sure this would be another great work of Jean Sassoon as is The Rape of Kuwait.
