Description

From the best-selling author of The First World War and Intelligence in War comes the most up-to-date and informed study yet of the Iraq War.

John Keegan, whom the New York Review of Books calls “the best historian of our day,” now brings his extraordinary expertise to bear on perhaps the most controversial war of our time. In exclusive interviews with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and General Tommy Franks, John Keegan has gathered information about the war that adds immeasurably to our grasp of its causes, complications, costs, and consequences. Keegan probes the reasons for the invasion; he delineates the strategy of the American and British forces in capturing Baghdad; he examines the quick victory over the Republican Guard and the more tenacious and deadly opposition that has taken its place. He analyzes the intelligence information with which the Bush and Blaire administrations convinced their respective governments of the need to go to war and which has since been strongly challenged in both countries. And he makes clear that despite the uncertainty about weapons of mass destruction, regime change, and the use and misuse of intelligence, the war in Iraq is an undeniably formidable display of American power.

The Iraq War is authoritative, timely, and vitally important to our understanding of a conflict whose ramifications are as yet unknown.
