Would you listen to Cobra II again? Why?
Yes. It is a detailed and unbiased account of the planning and execution of Operation Iraqi Freedom
What was one of the most memorable moments of Cobra II?
It is shocking how far off the mark our military and civilian leadership was on almost every assumption made during pre-invasion planning. For instance, the CIA and DOD believed that Iraqi Army units would capitulate and switch sides. This never happened. Instead, our forces were met with stiff resistance along the entire route to Baghdad.
Have you listened to any of Craig Wasson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I think he did a great job presenting the audio version of the book.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
How Donald Rumsfeld directly injected himself into the operational conduct of the war. This is truly unprecedented for a SECDEF.
