The Endgame: The Hidden History of the Struggle to build Democracy in Iraq

Author(s): Michael R. Gordon

Current Affairs

From Michael Gordon and Bernard Trainor comes the third behind-the-scenes account of what is really going on in Iraq. Like the The Generals' War and Cobra II this will likely become the defintive book on how Iraqi civil war was stopped in its tracks. The Endgame is a gripping and authoritative account of the secret military and political effort to pull Iraq from the precipice of full-scale civil war. The book fuses unrivalled access to the in-fighting of Washington policymakers with analysis of strategizing by the generals and hard-fought operations on the battlefield. Along with access to classified documents, the authors draw from sources including military commanders, high-level intelligence operatives, White House aides, Iraqi officials and the soldiers who have tested Bush Administration's strategy to its limits. This is a book that will be discussed in the White House, the Pentagon and the command centres in Baghdad. It will be an enduring account of the most decisive period of this bitterly divisive war. It is the third volume in the Gordon-Trainor collaboration on the United States military involvement in Iraq; magisterial accounts that have stood the test of time.
