Excellent analysis, very well documented and in an accessible style. The events recounted leave little room for doubt about the reasons for the Iraq War, which are today widely known. But the inside analysis is still worth a read. Written two years before Obama became President.
This is a brilliant reference book. It's one weakness is that it tells you almost nothing about why people did what they did, but if you want to know when they did it, who was involved and who knew what at the time it happened, then this is the book for you. Reading anything about the Iraq war, its origins and conduct without this book by your side is a waste of time. There is proof and rebuttal on every page for every known theory, including the official line, and as I say, it offers no theory of its own, so it's as near to objective as you are going to get. Thanks, guys!
