Review:

."..comes from an Army officer with three tours of duty in Operation Iraqi Freedom who provides a new assessment of the conflict, believing that the war was a good war fought well. His first-hand survey of the entire eight-year mission in Iraq comes from one who witnessed some of the most intense battles of the war, following the evolution from 'shock and awe' to strategies for handling local violence and counterinsurgency methods. Any collection strong in military history will find this a winning survey." --James A. Cox, "The Midwest Book Review "(January 2013)

Wright had done an excellent job of examining the strengths and weaknesses of the US military in Iraq and the political leadership back in the US (pointing to mistakes and achievements of both the Bush and Obama administrations). This is, and will remain a very valuable history of the war in Iraq. --Historyofwar.org

Book Description:

Book Description Osprey, Oxford Ox2 0ph United Kingdom, 2012. Hard Cover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. 376 pages, colour photos, notes, acknowledgements, index. A personal history of Operation Iraqi Freedom from an Army officer who served three tours of duty during the war. For Col Wright, the Iraq war was a good war fought well. In his new book, "Iraq Full Circle," he offers a first-hand assessment of the US Army's eight year war in Iraq. As battalion operations officer for an infantry battalion from 2003-2004 operating in the dangerous and volatile Sunni Triangle, followed by a tour of duty as a Brigade Executive Officer from 2005-2006 in Baghdad, Wright witnessed some of the harshest fighting seen during the war. He saw the evolution from 'shock and awe' to the 'clear-hold-build' strategy during the height of sectarian violence and was on-hand for the transition to COIN followed by the handover of security operations to the Iraqi Security Forces. In August 2010, Wright, as a deputy brigade commander, was among the last combat soldiers to leave Iraq as part of President Obama's draw-down of troops. While Wright does not hesitate to criticize the political and military leadership that failed to foresee the insurgency, or the errors in judgment that led to the dismantling of the Iraqi Army in 2003, his overall assessment of the war is that the US Army achieved what it was asked to do by two Presidents.
