Summary

Written by the chief military correspondent of theNew York Timesand a prominent retired Marine general, this is the definitive account of the invasion of Iraq. A stunning work of investigative journalism,Cobra IIdescribes in riveting detail how the American rush to Baghdad provided the opportunity for the virulent insurgency that followed. As Gordon and Trainor show, the brutal aftermath was not inevitable and was a surprise to the generals on both sides. Based on access to unseen documents and exclusive interviews with the men and women at the heart of the war,Cobra IIprovides firsthand accounts of the fighting on the ground and the high-level planning behind the scenes. Now with a new afterword that addresses what transpired after the fateful events of the summer of 2003, this is a peerless re-creation and analysis of the central event of our times.
