    PDF Peter R. Mansoor ✓ PDF Surge eBook ↠ ✓ american revolutionary war.co surge download, Surge eBookAWC The book includes a fair amount of apologetics for President Bush and his administration and it taught me a lot about the background and implementation of our 2007 2008 surge in Ira from the viewpoint of an officer who was right there during it all

    PDF Peter R. Mansoor ✓ PDF Surge eBook ↠ ✓ american revolutionary war.co surge download, Surge eBookAn insider's account of American counterinsurgency fighting in Ira Describes deliberations behind the Surge strategy and its implementation Includes both the historical narrative with events of the campaign and personal impressions opinions of other people encounters with friends and some good humorThe main point is solution to counterinsurgency is mostly political and armed forces operations are only means although very important to achieve that end and not the end themselves The author reiterates that main points of surge strategy perhaps too many times by the end of the book you already know what he is going to say in the next few paragraphs once he brings up the topic but I find it a minor drawbackTwo very important points were1 The key to success was winning the loyalties of population not by hearts and minds PR campaign but by solving their pressing needs security electricity water then political representation2 They could not kill all the enemies they had to make peace somehow

    PDF Peter R. Mansoor ✓ PDF Surge eBook ↠ ✓ american revolutionary war.co surge download, Surge eBookI though a long time about writing a review for this book It is masterly researched and gives an excellent picture of the surge in the Ira War However I served as an Army Officer retiree recall in a Provincial Reconstruction Team during this period and experienced a completely different existence than Colonel Mansoor At the ground level the State Department and military constantly were at each other's throats We got little done due to the constant fighting and the poor leadership of many of the State Department leaders Their complete disdain for the military and their goal of enhancing their careers was the sole reason for being in Ira They looked upon as Neanderthals who could barely read and write even though I have a PhD I have the highest respect and admiration for Colonel Mansoor General Petraeus Ambassador Crocker and especial

    PDF Peter R. Mansoor ✓ PDF Surge eBook ↠ ✓ american revolutionary war.co surge download, Surge eBookThe semi official history of the surge written by Gen Petraeus' executive officer Peter Mansoor But don't let that fool you Mansoor has a PhD in History and knows how to write a balanced account He argues correctly that the surge was successful and helped stabilize Ira but he also correctly credits the Anbar Awakening and other factors as crucial in helping bring about the turnaround in 2007 8 No history of the Ira war is complete without some accounting of Mansoor's record which should be considered a vital first draft of history
