    Drawing on the exclusive cooperation of an extraordinary number of American military personnel and access to more than 30,000 pages of official documents, many of them never before made public, Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post senior Pentagon correspondent Thomas E. Ricks fashions the definitive account - explosive, shocking, and authoritative - of the American military's tragic experience in Iraq. The heart of the story is that of a military occupation whose leaders failed to see a blooming, indigenous insurgency for what it was and as a result led their soldiers in such a way that the insurgency became inevitable. 'Fiasco' chronicles the war right up to...now. Notes, index. Photos. 482p.

    • Published: February 2009
    Washington Post correspondent Thomas Ricks has produced a compelling new study of the American military's current campaign in Iraq. 'The Gamble' focuses on the major change of strategy that has occurred since 2005, centered on the innovative General David Petraeus and his unusual set of advisers. Ricks goes behind the scenes of the counter-insurgency operation, using unprecedented privileged access to Petraeus and his team to paint a vivid and detailed portrait of their unorthodox methods. Ricks and Petraeus, despite the promises of the 2008 candidates, predict that the Iraq war is far from over, and is likely to last for up to five to ten more years.
