This is a great, and incredibly detailed account of what happened in Iraq. From the pre-war ramp up that was malformed, to the actual post-invasion decisions that all seemed to be designed in a vacuum or without a general understanding of Iraq. It's a long and detailed read but it's scope, and information is a must read to gain an understanding of the impact of the war.
