General Franks tells you how it was!
on July 15, 2014
I wish this story had a happier ending as the struggle for Iraq continues to this day. General Franks certainly did his part and I believe he did it for all the right reasons. Perhaps it is naïve to think we (America) can solve the problems of this area that have existed thousands of years but with the world shrinking because of modern transportation and communication I believe we do have a stake in events in this part of the world. I have read several books on the events leading up to the war in Iraq and continue to be confused by the opposite sides taken by the pros and cons of this war. This book certainly details all the inner workings of the lead up and execution of war in this technological age. The references he has to his personal life with his wife and daughter shows a person can be tough as nails when necessary and still have a very human soft side.
