This review is from: Iraq Full Circle: From Shock and Awe to the Last Combat Patrol in Baghdad and Beyond (General Military) (Hardcover)
Make no mistake about it, "Iraq Full Circle" is first and foremost a book detailing fighting on the front lines of Iraq. Written from a "Warrior" that had multiple tours, his own near death experiences, and suffered the loss of Soldiers and friends the author keeps your attention. A great mixture of hearing the story on the ground with a personal touch and then zooming out and getting a birds eye view from the strategic level. The author clearly sets the stage of our Army posture, perspective, and training before we went to war. Once in war he clearly lays out that our Army was learning on the move and learning as we fought. From victories, to mistakes, lessons on leadership, and lessons for the future the book has it all. This book kept my attention. A great read for any Soldier, family member, historian, leader, and anyone who wants to have a insight on the war in Iraq. I just can't say enough about this book, I read it in less than a day.
