'The book the MoD doesn't want you to read' Daily Mail Soon after British and American forces invaded Iraq they faced an insurgency that was almost impossible to understand, let alone reverse. Facing defeat, the Coalition waged a hidden war within a war. Major-General Stan McChrystal devised a campaign fusing special forces, aircraft, and the latest surveillance technology with the aim of taking down the enemy faster than it could regenerate. Guided by intelligence, a small British special forces team met the car bombers' fire with fire and accounted for thousands of insurgents.
For those interested in the political aspects of the war the use of the terminology of modern political discourse - the kind that seeks to make what is obvious, unclear and murder seem acceptable shows how inaccurate those terms were and how biased they were towards civilians and the like.
Unfortunately with that in mind its only a two and half star review from me but then again I am comparing it to his previous excellent work on Rifles and Fusiliers.
