I got 10 pages into this book before I had to stop reading it. Those ten pages were filled with gross factual inaccuracies, broad generalities that anyone who had read a newspaper in the last 10 years would already know in more detail, simplistic exaggerations bordering on propaganda, and absolutely no structure whatsoever.

Disappointed. I thought it was going to be an exciting account on capturing Saddam. However, it turned out to be a very detailed-orientated book, which I think bogged the storyline. It's a good book if you're looking for a blow by blow account of all the details, but I felt the story could have been more free flowing.

Very misleading title. Most of these stories are about the actions of Green Beret's in Iraq. It does cover the operation that captured Saddam, but not the intelligence and operations that led to his capture.

An Ok book not as good as previous efforts but still readable.

It seems to be a propaganda stuff to serve the second Bush Administration. It carries details even about insignificant military operations in Iraq. Abusive language against former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein leaves bitter memories about reading the book.
