Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere but this has been recommended in the Guardian Guide as radio pick of the day. It says: "The Desert Rats are no strangers to Iraq. Having led the invasion into the South three years earlier, they returned to a very different scene in 2005.

When Grey himself was last in Basra he could walk freely about the town, but with the rise of kidnapping and insurgency he now has to travel under the Desert Rats armoured protection. Life is far from simple or safe now: Grey finds a concerning tale of corruption, foreign intervention and simmering hostility.
