Smashwords book reviews by Stefano Doglio

  • In the Wake of the Surge on Feb. 29, 2012

    excellent series of reports from Iraq war during the Surge, ideally read after or before "The Gamble: General Petraeus and the Untold Story of the American Surge in Iraq, 2006 - 2008", but while Ricks book has a sort of more detached, scholar view, Totten makes you meet and speak with the people on the ground. While "The Gamble" is much more detailed and thus sometimes quite heavy to read (unless you're a fanatic of US military politics) "In the Wake of the Surge" is a much easier book to read, while actually describing the same points and reaching very similar conclusions. Whatever your political ideas about this war are, do read this book and you won't be disappointed.
