Though it shows some signs of being an "instant book," the detail and thinking that went into the work makes for extremely worthwhile political analysis. It provides a strong factual recounting of the Lamo affair, which helped "capture" Manning. It provides excellent context for the military hearings, and documents Manning's imprisonment and mistreatment by authorities as well as we can determine from the outside. It covers the damage assessment from the leaks well. It's very acessible; for example, by drawing attention to the moment when Daniel Ellsberg placed his hand on Bradley Manning's shoulder in the military courtroom, the authors brilliantly provide historical context and meaning that explains to the reader in a single image why Manning's story is so important. The one complaint this reviewer has is the book's failure to explain who Manning is. It contains the full recounting of the family problems and sexual identity questions, but doesn't seem to provide a context that ties neatly with the document release. The authors, of course, had no access to Manning, which makes such a discussion difficult.

The very beginning pages cite the Karen Silkwood case, whose death in the town that Manning was born in, thirteen years previous to Manning's birth, is used to frame the book's central question: "Crescent residents still argue about Silkwood today: hero or political malcontent?" By the end of the book, that Manning is a hero for our times is made clear. "Truth And Consequences: The U.S. vs. Bradley Manning" is an excellent and thoughtful account well worth reading.

This book might benefit from a good editor, but as is, it tells an important story which is not being covered by the major media outlets. On finishing the book, I don't feel as though I understand Bradley Manning, but I know a lot more about him, and I know a lot more about the secrets which our government believes it is entitled to keep from us.

Although the account here is very comprehensive, much of the language is legal jargon which confuses and baffles someone without any legal background. The attempt is to provide a precise and thorough point by point summary of every single obscure legal precedent, all of which would make perfect sense to someone who had spent a lifetime in the court system, but to a layman, most of it just goes right over my head. I would have preferred a less specific, more generalized account to this kind of approach. Ultimately, I still am not able to grasp exactly what the prosecution's case against Bradley Manning was all about, except to say that the powers that be have decided to prosecute him based primarily on a video of a terrible mistake by the military -- unjustified killing of a group of civilians including a van driven by a good Samaritan with a couple of kids inside. Although the military can use all kinds of logic to justify this indiscriminate act of violence, the one person who gets hauled off to jail is the one who reported it. The irony can not be overstated -- and I would have preferred to read more about the consequences of the action (when the military kills civilians, why do they not get hauled into court?) However, such a discussion is outside the realm of this book. For someone who is purely interested in the ins and outs of military justice, this book might be revealing, but for a person who is not interested in the eccentricities of military justice, there is little here of much value.

This is a page turner! I couldn't put it down! If you have even a passing interest in how things have occurred with Wikileaks and Pfc Bradley Manning and how our government works, you owe it to yourself to read this. It's a bargain at $3.99.
