In One Woman's Army, Karpinski takes us inside the prison walls and describes unflinchingly what it was like to interact with the Iraqi prisoners, the corruption within the armed forces and the accompanying private firms, and her meeting with Saddam Hussein, who refused to believe that a woman could be in charge. She talks about what life is really like for women in the armed forces and the tremendous obstacles she has faced.
Co-written with Newsweek correspondent Steven Strasser, she forcefully argues that the bulk of the blame for the Abu Ghraib scandal goes to the very top of the chain of command, to Lieutenant General Sanchez, Ambassador Bremer, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, and tells why she has been made a scapegoat. Hers is a story of military leaders run amok, and a moving portrait of a woman who spent her life defying the odds in pursuit of her dream.

A book that needed to be written.
I didn't know what to expect, when I bought this book, but am glad I did. I'm glad that she was able to tell her side of the incident, and inform us of how the Army made her the scapegoat for their mistakes.
The reader was excellent and made me think that it was her story.

Excellent Book! Great Resource. I read it twice.
This book is an ideal resource for an individual who desires to reduce the clutter & also the professional (or freind) working to help an individual reclaim their home & life.
