    I had mixed feelings about this piece of work. I strongly admired the authors attempts to objectively and factually present their case through factoids and quotes. One didn't get a sense of any particularly agenda being pushed other than to highlight tragedy (wh

    A sequel (to the authors' graphic adaptation of The 9/11 Report) better than the work that preceded it; in this the presentation is more blunt in pointing out the lies and mistakes of the people who decided to invade Iraq and have mismanaged both that war and the war

    Told n a very straightforward way, the authors detail the Iraq and Afghanistan wars through mid-2008. I remember much of the headlines and also some details from reading Woodward’s books on the Bush wars. I liked how they also dropped in references to other events that

    Recounts events, in graphic novel format, of the events leading up to the Iraq invasion of 2003 and the quagmire that followed. We're still heavily involved in the region in 2018. America learned none of the lessons of the Soviets in Afghanistan. Costliest and longest war involvment, ever. R

    Graphic novel format is not my favorite format to read in. My brain just doesn't work that way. However, it is a powerful way to convey information, especially information of this type that can easily be just numbers and places and names. If you want to get a general overview of the Afghan/Iraq w
