Journalist Michael Hastings of Rolling Stone looked on as McChrystal and his staff let off steam, partying and openly bashing the Obama administration. When Hastings' piece appeared a few months later, it set off a political firestorm: McChrystal was ordered to Washington, where he was unceremoniously fired.
Hastings gives us a shocking behind-the-scenes portrait of Allied military commanders, their high-stakes manoeuvres and often bitter bureaucratic infighting.

A good accompaniment to war machine
I wanted to read this after seeing Brad Pitt's warm machine. I thought it was fascinating. It was good to get the complete picture around what happened. Let's hope they learn from it.

The author was candid and frank in his assessment of both the subject and at times himself. The story is unique as he was not bluffed by his proximity to the people however he did remain respectful of the subjects.
