I Was Saddam's SonBook - 1997
Tortured and forced to undergo surgery to heighten his resemblance to Uday Saddam Hussein, Yahia served as the double of Saddam's son for four years. During that time he gained privileged access to the inner circle of Saddam's regime. He took part in the plunder of Kuwait and visited the troops behind Iraqi lines during the Gulf War. After a falling out with Uday, he was imprisoned, and then inexplicably let go. He was eventually able to escape through Kurdistan. No index. Translated from the Austrian edition.
