I can't put down the new book "Fiasco" by Thomas Ricks (author of "Building the Corps" and "A Soldier's Duty" as well as a Pentagon correspondent for the Washington Post). As a lover of good narrative history, this book is well done. Tom Ricks has reviewed 30,000 documents, incorporating a multitude by reference and descriptions and has the comments of a multitude of military and civilian leadership woven throughout, giving the point of view of the various individuals as the book moves us along the timeline. That timeline is interesting in itself and the twists and turns along it that create a type of suspense - no small feat in a history when you wonder "what is going to happen next?" I thought I would pass along this praise as I thought others might find the book very interesting. I picked it up at Barnes and Noble where there was a discount sticker off the cover price in the "new" section up at the front of the store.
