This book gets 3 stars from me because it talks alot more politics and policy than true grit. I'm like more of a small unit day to day operations listener and this book doesn't cover alot of that. I think it would be a good listen for folks that like a "big picture" type story.
But thats just my opinion.

If you are as sick as I am of the press not providing adequate coverage of the heros still fighting in Iraq today, then you must read this book! It is well written and well read. Well worth purchasing.

Great book, has some great detail, It show you how gritty this battle was in some places.
Gives you the side of the men that had to assault the city after they (insurgents) had time to prepare, tells you about command and higher ups that failed the Marines that paid dearly for there inaction. If your into war books with information and first had accounts this is a great listen.
Sorry but I just could not get into this book. Persevered for 2 hours then skipped to middle to see if it improved. It was like being in a lecture room listening to a dull subject given by an equally dull lecturer although I can't blame the narrator for the material he was given. One for the historians perhaps.
Well told and read. a comprehensive view of Iraq in the post invasion period.
how decisions made by politicians and diplomats ignore those that know better.
the facts are enlivened with accounts of conflicts about real soldiers and mot just pieces on a board.
a great story.
