Ricks news-breaking follow up to the #1 New York TimesFiascoNow updated to fully document the inside story of the Iraq war since late 2005, The Gamble is the definitive account of the insurgency within the U.S. military that led to a radical shift in Americas strategy. Based on unprecedented real-time access to the militarys entire chain of command, Ricks examines the events that took place as the military was forced to reckon with itself, the surge was launched, and a very different war began. His stunning conclusion, stated in the last line of the book, is that the events for which the Iraq war will be remembered probably have not yet happened.
