Summary

From the authors of the national bestseller Cobra II, another news-breaking book: the inside story of America's objectives in what is arguably the most widely reported but least understood war in our history, based on extensive reporting from Iraq between 2006 to 2011 and access to highly classified military and diplomatic information. From the invasion and occupation of Iraq to the wind-down of the war, from George W. Bush to Barack Obama, Michael Gordon and General Bernard E. Trainor give us, in their most ambitious book, a definitive history not only of the fighting but also of the diplomacy and political struggle in the country, as framed by the Americans, the Iraqis, and the Iranians. The End Game is brilliantly informed by access to key figures in the White House, the military, the State and Defense departments, and the CIA, but also, most strikingly, by extensive interviews with both Sunni and Sh'ia Iraqi leaders (including Nouri al-Maliki and his political rivals), top Kurdish politicians, tribal leaders, former insurgents, Sadrists and senior Iraqi military officers, and police commanders, whose insights into critical turning points and previously unknown decisions have heretofore been conspicuously missing from other accounts of the war. From the Hardcover edition.
