Tell Me How This Ends: General David Petraeus and the Search for a Way Out of Iraq Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a series of disastrous missteps in its conduct of the war, the White House in 2006 appointed General David Petraeus as the Commanding General of the coalition forces. Tell Me How This Ends is an inside account of his attempt to turn around a failing war.

Linda Robinson conducted extensive interviews with Petraeus and his subordinate commanders and spent weeks with key U.S. and Iraqi divisions. The result is the only book that ties together military operations in Iraq and the internecine political drama that is at the heart of the civil war.

Replete with dramatic battles, behind-doors confrontations, and astute analysis, the book tells the full story of the Iraq Wars endgame, and lays out the options that will be facing the next president when he or she takes office in January 2009.

Synopsis:

A New York Times Notable Book for 2008 and Foreign Affairs bestseller: “The first book about this new Iraq… A first-rate piece of work, probing and conscientious.” (The New York Times Book Review)

Synopsis:

On the ground in Iraq, with General Petraeus and his commanders, the author of the New York Times bestseller Masters of Chaos reports on the endgame of a controversial war.

Synopsis:

After many missteps made from the invasion in 2003 through 2006, the White House appointed General Petraeus as the top commander in Iraq, initiating a new strategy and a new approach to prosecuting the war. Tell Me How This Ends is an inside account of General David Petraeus's attempt to turn around a failing war. Bestselling author Linda Robinson had unprecedented access to Petraeus, interviewing him and sitting in on his daily briefings. She also has extensive experience in Iraq, embedding herself with key U.S. and Iraqi divisions, and talking with brigade and battalion commanders who were responsible for Baghdad. The result is the only book that ties together military operations in Iraq and the internecine political drama that is at the heart of the civil war.
