Add this book to the ones that you read to educate yourself on the Iraq War. Sanchez had the birds-eye view of what was going on and which players did what. His analysis of Bremer appears to be, from what has been made available, right on the mark. The good thing about this book is that Sanchez doesn't lay blame -- although that ends up happening. He just tells the facts. He also doesn't whine, which some coming out of this situation are prone to do.
I was a little hesitant that he did his own narration, but Sanchez ends up being engaging in a home-town humble way. He is certainly not theatrical though, so if you are looking to stay awake on a long drive avoid this one unless military history really makes your blood boil.
All in all, a well though out book from an expert.

I worked for LTG Sanchez in Baghdad. Don't agree with some of his politics, but have tremendous respect for his extraordinary efforts in an impossible situation. Sanchez's reading of his book helps one understand what really went on in Iraq during 2003 and 2004.
