Hell is Over adds color to the Kurds' history. Aside from a short scene-setter describing little more than the period following the 2003 ouster of Saddam Hussein, there is no history.

For the Kurds, there is no ambivalence: The war brought them one step closer to freedom.
Tucker talked about his book Hell Is Over: Voices of the Kurds After Saddam, An Oral History, published by Lyons Press.
