"'By far the most authoritative and convincing account thus far of 2003's military events... a shocking indictment.' Max Hastings, Sunday Telegraph 'Magisterial... with mountains of fresh detail on the war's planning and progress, and judicious analysis, Cobra II will be hard to improve upon.' Economist 'Cobra II is everything that the Bush administration's plan for the war was not. It is meticulously organised, shuns bluff and bombast for lapidary statements, and is largely impervious to attack... excellent.' Jacob Heilbrunn, International Herald Tribune 'The clearest and most penetrating account of America's bewildering adventure in Iraq.' Robert Fox, Evening Standard 'Cobra II will likely become the benchmark by which other histories of the Iraq invasion are measured... A penetrating examination of how and why the United States got itself into that mess.' Sean Naylor, New York Times" --max hastings, sunday telegraph
