    Have you ever wondered what the world has been doing in the middle east? Well The Iraq War by Rodney Carlisle will give any reader a good idea on the war. Now you can be informed on facts of the war. Obviously this book will talk about the Taliban and Al-Qaeda. But gives a lot history on the build up to the war. From the beginning the US was a fighting force on its own. The Americans had enough of the terrorism and declared war on it. Everyone else in NATO was not willing to spend the money to bring down these terror groups at the start, which ended up costing tens of millions of dollars. Everyone knows what caused the war which was 9/11. What about the Middle East war before it? Well, Rodney does a good job of talking about the Persian Gulf War which goes way back to Saddam Hussein and his presidency in Iraq in the 90’s. This helped me understand more about the war from Hussein's build up of a more advanced army. After the Gulf War, Rodney talked about the first week of war which was total destruction to Iraq cities from both sides. Then he fast forwards to everything past 2004 which talks about everything after the battle of Baghdad. Then he goes on how the US planned on bringing a Democracy to the Middle East, which was a complicated mess. I wanted to read this book because this a war that was fought a few years after I was born. Also I had family members serve during the war so I now have a better idea what they had to face over the period of the war. I would recommend this to someone who wants more information on the Iraq war and the presidents of Iraq. Also this book will help people understand why the US got involved. You should read this book because it has a lot of information, that will help you understand why we stayed in the war for so long. Also this book is a fairly simple read, probably for older teenagers. This book is aimed for people that like to read about information on war. Overall I rated this book a 3 out of 5 because it has quality information but some of it feels bland.

    The book Iraq War is a very good book I believe and is one of the best military books I have ever read.It starts right at the end of Operation Desert Storm and when the twin towers got attacked on 9/11.It shows how the American people reacted quickly to it and sent rooms over to Iraq in 2003.It goes to different soilders stories and what they did in the war and how they helped the war in many ways.I also liked how it showed the map of Iraq after any event would happen to the Iraqi insurgents.It also describes the very dangerous mission of catching Sadamm Hussein the former dictator of Iraq that had invaded Kuwait for oil.I highly recommend that you read this book if you like to read modern military books about the American soilders over seas.

    I loved this book. I'm someone who loves to read all of these books about wars and this put me right down into the action. It takes you through story's such as the capture of Saddam Hussein and the aftermath of the war there. It didn't just have a toll on the people fighting in the war, but those who the war was fought in their backyard.

    Iraq War by Rodney P. Carlisle is a nonfiction about the events leading up to and during the Iraq War. The main characters are President George W. Bush, Prime Minister Tony Blair and Saddam Hussein. The book is about how the actions of these three people caused the Iraq War. Hussein's terrible treatment of his people, refusal to let the United Nations inspect his weapons, and his record of financing and supporting terrorists all played a role in President Bush's decision to bomb Iraq. The Iraq War was the most controversial was in American history.I enjoyed this book because I think it's important to know our history so we don't repeat mistakes. Also, it's important to know why things are the way they are in the world. The terrorist attack on the United States on 9/11/01 was the worst in our history and almost 3,000 people died. I completely understand why Bush and Blair decided to invade Iraq because Hussein was helping al-Qaeda (the terrorist responsible for 9/11). The US and British forces destroyed the Iraqi army in 2003 and Hussein went into hiding.I think this is an important book for many people to read to understand Bush's decisions regarding the war in Iraq because people still disagree with him. I don't think they understand the brutality the Iraqi people suffered under Hussein. Some people seem to have forgot (or are too young to remember) the images of 9/11. This book gives the facts of all the things that lead up to the Iraq War so people can be informed when they give opinions on the matter. I also appreciate that this book gives details about the pros and cons of this war and what happened before and immediately after. The war in Iraq is still going on, but at least I know more now about why our soldiers are there.
