Iraq war: Photojournalists tell 'untold story'

9 May 2013 Last updated at 16:36 BST

Already being described by some as the "forgotten war", America's fraught military expedition into Iraq now rarely captures news headlines.

But a new book - Photojournalists on War: The Untold Story from Iraq - might, at the very least, spark more reflection.

One critic has already described the book, which contains some never-before-published pictures, as being among the "essential documents" to come out of the Iraq war.

The book's editor Michael Kamber, a photojournalist who covered the war for the New York Times, has been speaking to Michael Maher.
