As the U.S. military waged war against Saddam Hussein in 2003, Americans at home divided their attention between Iraq and other issues that included terrorist threats, a shaky economy, and a presidential campaign. The book explores these issues as well as national debates over flawed intelligence, the validity of pre-emptive wars, and the objectivity of the media.
"The text is supplemented by quotes from primary-source materials such as letters, diaries, and published accounts written by soldiers, nurses, and civilians."
