Editorial Reviews

Review

"Those interested in Operation Iraqi Freedom should read Sjursen's contribution to our collective understanding of the war from a tactical perspective. Scholars will find Ghost Riders of Baghdad a useful companion to more scholarly works on the war in Iraq. Yet most importantly, educators should use the book as an example for other veterans to follow. The experiences of soldiers shed ample light on the murkier parts of history--the areas where rhetoric and strategy are not always congruent--which future historians cherish when deliberating over soldier motivations, memory, and so on."-- "H-FedHist"

"In this fascinating book, author Sjursen asks some searching questions which may leave some of the US commanders feeling uncomfortable."-- "Books Monthly"

Review

“Sjursen takes you on an intellectual thrill ride, with more than a few surprises. If you want political talking points or an army operations order, look elsewhere. There are no easy answers on the streets of Iraq. Think you know all about the famous ‘surge’? Guess again.” (Lucas Tomlinson, producer, Fox News Channel)

“Ghost Riders of Baghdad is the best memoir to come out of the American wars in Southwest Asia. Sjursen’s honesty and passion bleed through every page and raise serious questions about the ‘victory’ in Iraq.” (Robert A. Doughty, author of Pyrrhic Victory: French Strategy and Operations in the Great War)
