    A New York Times Bestseller Winner of an Overseas Press Club award for his reporting from Iraq, George Packer recounts how the United States set about changing the history of the Middle East and became ensnared in a guerilla war in Iraq. He brings to life the people and ideas that created the Bush administration's war policy and led America to the Assassins' Gate - the main point of entry into the American zone in Baghdad.

Understand how Iraq was bungled

by Burger on Jul 19, 2007

This depressing but informative book shows how true believers who thought they had re-invented modern war mishandled America's great adventure in Iraq from planning to execution. Even when decisions were demonstrably harmful from the start, the planners forged ahead as if immune to fallout from the dim-witted decisions they were making. From individual soldiers and Marines to the highest officials of the USA, decisions and actions were in line with theory and faith, not facts on the ground. To understand how important it is that foreign policy be based on knowledge and history, read this book.
