It is a comprehensive account that allows individual conclusions, including accounts by Iraqi soldiers, about the largest armour battle since World War II.

Each chapter leads off with a compelling personal combat story that brings you right into battle alongside individual soldiers and puts the conflict into human perspective. Certain Victory is a quick read and free of military jargon, offering a balanced, comprehensive account of the largest armor battle since World War II.
