Blair's War's Review, 18 Oct 2013
This is a sad book. It's let's bash Blair although Brown possibly has more to answer for, all ok in theory but the Generals all seem to suggest they could have won if they had the resources. We were never going to be able to win and they should have known that and then spoken up. None of them take responsibility for anything that went wrong. They totally miss the point that war is changing. The book lacks any views from the government of the day, the treasury and the FCO. It's a one sided " it was not our fault" whine. The Iraq/ Afghanistan conflicts were strategic disasters, we all went along with it and the self serving articles by some Generals who did not speak up when serving to protect their own careers is a sad indictment of the lack of moral courage in senior army officers.
