The spymaster of Baghdad : the untold story of the elite intelligence cell that turned the tide against ISIS

Coker, Margaret2021
Books
The driver was sweating as his explosive-filled pickup truck sped along a rain-slicked Baghdad highway toward a neighbourhood bustling with open-air markets. And he had another reason for panic - he was a spy who thought his cover had been blown. 'The Spymaster of Baghdad' is the story of the top-secret Iraqi intelligence unit that infiltrated the Islamic State. More so than that of any foreign power, the information they gathered turned the tide against the insurgency, paving the way to the killing of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in 2019.
