Summary

Thomas E. Rick's news-breaking follow up to the #1 New York Times Now updated to fully document the inside story of the Iraq war since late 2005, The Gambleis the definitive account of the insurgency within the U.S. military that led to a radical shift in America's strategy. Based on unprecedented real-time access to the military's entire chain of command, Ricks examines the events that took place as the military was forced to reckon with itself, the surge was launched, and a very different war began. His stunning conclusion, stated in the last line of the book, is that "the events for which the Iraq war will be remembered probably have not yet happened."
