The Iraq War. The Military Offensive, from Victory in 21 Days to the Insurgent Aftermath

In exclusive interviews with Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and General Tommy Franks, John Keegan has gathered information about the war that adds immeasurably to our grasp of its causes, complications, costs, and consequences.
