    1. This was a perspective of war like it is a game of chess. This piece moves here in order to attack/stop this piece, etc. Human lives are treated as units of force instead of as individuals with families and desires of their own. But that is a fact of war. The generals move the pieces, the pieces are very much human, but have signed up to be part of a larger mechanism that disrobes them of their humanity. I know this book is not intended to talk about the human loss of life during war, but after [...]

    2. Written in the summer of 03 (thus before the insurgency in Iraq), this visionnary book shows how the military, albeit in his mind the very best in the world, cannot alone win a modern war, any more than the brass section alone can execute a symphony.The letter-perfect conjunction of intelligence, air and ground forces in Iraq has delivered "victory without success" because the rest (diplomacy, consensus, administration, reconstruction and other 'civilian' needs: educators, police, judges, doctor [...]

    3. Winning Modern Wars by General Wesley Clark was written at the nadir of his political run for office and despite being an attempt to outlay a political platform provides useful insight into the war in Iraq.

This book outlines the various military strategies used to win the initial ground war in Iraq but showed the flaw when American [...]

    4. I respect Gen. Clark and wanted this book to be better than what it was. He makes some relevant points, but they are not completely proven. Sadly, a great general (even with help) can't make a great pilicy book.

    5. Wasn't as good as his book "Waging Modern War" but it was nevertheless an interesting look and a well-written account in particular about how the second Iraq War's ground and air war was waged.
