Summary
"A searing narrative of the Battle of Mosul, described by the Pentagon as "the most significant urban combat since World War II." In this masterpiece of war journalism based on months of frontline reporting, National Magazine Award winner James Verini describes the climactic battle in the struggle against the Islamic State. Focusing on two brothers from Mosul and their families, a charismatic Iraqi major who marched north from Baghdad to seize the city with his troops, rowdy Kurdish militiamen, and a hard- bitten American sergeant, Verini describes a war for the soul of a country, a war over and for history. Seeing the battle in a larger, centuries- long sweep, he connects the bloody- minded philosophy of the Islamic State with the ancient Assyrians who founded Mosul. He also confronts the ways that the American invasion of Iraq not only deformed that country, but also changed America like no conflict since Vietnam"--
