War Journal - My Five Years in Iraq

By Richard Engel

NY: Simon and Shuster, 2008. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. War Journal describes a sectarian war that American leaders were late to understand and struggled to contain.

A Pretext for War: 9/11, Iraq, and the Abuse of America's Intelligence Agencies

By James Bamford

Doubleday, 2004. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""A Pretext for War"" homes in on the systemic weakness that led the intelligence community to ignore or misinterpret evidence of the impending terrorist attacks of 9/11 -- a failure rooted in the refusal to acknowledge the central role of the Palestinian cause in igniting Arab rage against the United States. Compounding the errors, the Bush administration's immediate response to 9/11 was to call for an attack on Iraq, and it subsequently invented justifications for the preemptive war that has ultimately left the United States more vulnerable to terrorism.""

Iraq: The Logic of Withdrawal

By Anthony Arnove

NY: The New Press, 2006. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""Challenging the idea that George W. Bush has ever been interested in bringing democracy to the country--as well as the view held by many on both sides of the political spectrum that it would be more damaging to leave permaturely--Arnove explores the real reasons behind the invasion.

Defeat - Why America and Britain Lost Iraq

By Jonathan Steele

Berkeley, California, U.S.A.: Counterpoint, 2008. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""Having conducted extensive interviews with ordinary Iraqis--Shia, Sunni, and Kurd, religious and secular, middle class and poor--Steele shows for the first time how the staging posts of the conflict so familiar to Western newspaper readers were seen by the Iraqis themselves. Turning a searchlight onto the foreign policy establishments of Britain and America, he looks at why they failed to realize that the post-Saddam vacuum would be filled by Islamists, not pro-Western secularists. With the sectarian conflict intensifying, Steele delves into confidential sources to reveal the processes and arguments which led to Britain effectively handing over control of the South to Iranian-backed Shia militias.""

My Year in Iraq: The Struggle to Build a Future of Hope

By L. Paul Bremer III; Malcolm McConnell

Simon & Schuster, 2006. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""Bremer faced daunting problems working with Iraq's traumatized and divided population to find a path to a responsible and representative government. The Shia Arabs, the country's long-repressed majority, deeply distrusted the Sunni Arab minority who had held power for centuries and had controlled the detested Baath Party. Iraq's non-Arab Kunds teetered on the brink of secession when Bremer arrived. He had to find Sunnis willing to participate in the new political order. 'My Year in Iraq' is required reading for all those interested in the real story of how America responded to its gravest recent overseas crisis."" Hard cover in very good condition.

How America Lost Iraq

By Aaron Glantz

Jermy P. Tarcher/Penguin, 2005. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good.

Saddam's Secrets: How an Iraqi General Defied And Survived Saddam Hussein

By Iraqi General Georges Sada with Jim Nelson Black

Integrity Publishers, 2006. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""As much as this book discloses secrets that only those closest to Saddam would know, the motivating force in General Sada's own life is no secret. He was a modern-day Daniel in a spiritually volatile land. And yet he rose to the top of his field and became one of Hussein's most trusted advisors--because Saddam knew Georges would always tell him the truth. From his years as an ace Iraqi pilot and trainer, to covert military operations and his dramatic, insider conversations with Saddam and other world leaders, Sada was able to make a difference-even when lives hung in the balance. Here is the story in his own courageous words."" <p> Hard cover in very good condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Dust jacket in very good condition.

U.S.A.: Little, Brown and Company, 2006. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""It was supposed to be quick, easy, and cheap: the Bush administration promised American taxpayers that Iraqi oil revenues would pay for it all. But thousands of lives and billions of dollars later, the Iraqi reconstruction--the largest foreign aid package to any country in the History of the United States--is an undeniable failure.

By Sean Michael Flynn

Viking, 2007. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. From the book, ""By 1990, however, the once-great 69th was scarcely fit for duty. Its equipment was derelict, its discipline nonexistent, and many of its leaders inept. No longer an Irish American bastion, the 69th's ranks reflected the new immigrants arriving in the United States: a motley mix of Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Colombians, Chinese, African Americans, Russians, Poles, Koreans, and a stalwart handful of Irish, most of whom had little intention of serving their country for any longer than it took to get a paycheck, college credit, or job training.""
