War Reporters Praise Each Others Books

engelbook_7-9.JPGdozierbook_7-9.JPGNBC 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.”
