A New York Times Notable Book of the Year
After a series of disastrous missteps in its conduct of the war, the White House in 2006 appointed General David Petraeus as the Commanding General of the coalition forces. Tell Me How This Ends is an inside account of his attempt to turn around a failing war.
Linda Robinson conducted extensive interviews with Petraeus and his subordinate commanders and spent weeks with key U.S. and Iraqi divisions. The result is the only book that ties together military operations in Iraq and the internecine political drama that is at the heart of the civil war.
Replete with dramatic battles, behind-doors confrontations, and astute analysis, the book tells the full story of the Iraq War's endgame, and lays out the options that will be facing the next president when he or she takes office in January 2009.
Linda Robinson is currently Author in Residence at the Merrill Center for Strategic Studies of the Johns Hopkins School for Advanced International Studies. Her book about the U.S. Army Special Forces, Masters of Chaos, was a New York Times bestseller. She has made extended reporting trips to Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11 and received the Gerald R. Ford Prize for Reporting on National Defense in 2005. Ms. Robinson has reported on military, national security and international issues for U.S. News & World Report and was Senior Editor at Foreign Affairs magazine.
