    Cutting through the headlines and spin, this is the first book to give us a true picture of the reality on the ground, through the words of the people there - from commanders to intelligence officers, army doctors to ordinary soldiers. Providing eye-witness accounts that contradict the official stories and figures, they give a chilling picture of the deceit, stupidity, wishful thinking, lack of forward planning and total intellectual failure of those behind the invasion. The result is an extraordinary new insight into the ... Show more

He Is Wrong

by James S on Feb 10, 2014

Needs to review his facts more. Not sure he ever really gets the point across.

BRILLIANT BOOK

by speedykam on Jan 22, 2009

A must read for anyone wishing to know more about the latest Neocons adventure which has affected millions, destroyed a country and destabilised a region. The research is accurate & the comments reflect the tragedy of letting the loonies (NEOCONS) RUN THE ASYLUM.

Dave

Excellent early study of the Iraq War

by Dave on Apr 6, 2007

Well written, balanced work evaluating America's early efforts in Iraq. Provides detailed assessments of the successes and failures associated with the Iraq invasion, focusing on the post-invasion plan (hence the title). Useful "coulda-shoulda-woulda" discussions and pointy assessments of senior officer and Adminstration performance. Recent sweeping changes in American strategy suggest that this book's recommendations are on track. Complementary work to "COBRA II", which focused on the intial invasion.
