The authors herein treat only the campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq, the largest U.S. efforts. It is intended for future senior officers, their advisors, and other national security decision makers. By derivation, it is also a book for students in joint professional military education courses, which will qualify them to work in the field of strategy.

    A first class analysis of what the US should learn from its (long) interventions in Afghanistan and Iraq. Hooker and Collins are the main contributors (and editors) with experts contributing chapters that relate to their particular fields. It is well written in a crisp and accessible style and, importantly, pulls few punches in identifying what could have been done better. In sum: a well researched and valuable critique which I found particularly useful as a source for a booklet I have just written on strategy formulation and strategic leadership. Strongly recommended.
