Summary

Since 2003, Iraq has rarely left the headlines. But less discussed is the fact that Iraq was created by the British. This book charts Britain's path from one of its worst military disasters to extraordinary success with largely unintended consequences, through overconfidence, incompetence and dangerously vague policy.
