In this hard-hitting account of Britain's military occupation of southern Iraq, from the aftermath of the 2003 invasion to 2009, when the last British troops were ordered to leave by the Iraqi government, Richard North argues that the occupation was an abject failure and the blame lies with the Blair government's failure to provide the Army with the forces and equipment to meet a challenge that it and the military establishment had hopelessly misread from the start.
