From TV Newser: War Reporters Praise Each Others Books

TV Newser reported that

NBC News’ Richard Engel and CBS News’ Kimberly Dozier have each written books about their experience covering the war in Iraq. The “friends” praised one another’s publications recently.

Engel picked Dozier’s book as his summer reading choice in Time Magazine. “Kim’s powerful book is the most detailed account I’ve read of what thousands of wounded U.S. troops, many Iraqis and a few unlucky journalists have had to endure because of the war in Iraq,” he writes. “Her book is a reminder to all of us who cover Iraq how quickly our luck can change.”

Dozier responded in a WashingtonPost.com chat yesterday, writing, “Let me go on the record saying his book, War Journal, is great – a fantastic read.”

Engel’s book War Journal: My Five Years in Iraq came out in June from Simon & Schuster and Dozier’s Breathing the Fire was published back in mid May by Meredith Books.
