The Strongest Tribe - War, Politics, and the Endgame in Iraq

Author(s): Bing West


In Iraq, the United States made mistake after mistake. Many Americans gave up on the war. Then two generals--David Petraeus and Raymond Odierno--displayed the leadership America expected. Bringing the reader from the White House to the fighting in the streets, combat journalist and bestselling author Bing West explains this astounding turnaround by U.S. forces. In the course of fifteen extended trips over five years, West embedded with more than sixty front-line units, discussing strategy with generals and tactics with corporals. Disposing of myths, he provides an expert's account of the counterinsurgency. This is the definitive study of how American soldiers actually fought.

2008. First edition. A near fine copy only marked by a couple of remainder spots on the bottom edge. The d/w is unclipped and also near fine.
