It's not really a book, more a picture essay, but I just bought "The Fight for Iraq". It's pretty good.

The Best book on the war in IRAQ has to be THE DAILY TELEGRAPH - WAR ON SADDAM , because of the good looking chap in his 'doss bag ' on page 57 reading a 31st birthday card
theres a yank pulitzer prize winner who's written a book called THUNDER RUN on the armoured strikes into Baghdad. Its chock full of bible chewing cigar reading officers taking their men into the lions den under fire, loads of cock ups and narrow escapes along with blue on blues an so forth. Its full of details and quite an eye-opener that the author managed to get this out an is not in Gitmo as a anti-pacifist-anti-american.
General Sir Peter De La Billiere's book is excellent, www.amazon.co.uk/exec/...oding=UTF8
