Fans of Mr. Yon's wartime reporting will find some of his greatest posts repeated in this short but highly readable book.

Beginning as a basic primer on the Iraq War from 2003 on the book and moving into a gripping first-person account for the years 2005-2007. As such, the Moment of Truth is a hard to beat as a ground-level view of the America's successful reversal of the negative long-term trends in Iraq. This is the book you'll want to read to learn first-hand about the Sunni Awakening and other key late Iraq War phenomena.

For a more strategic view from the realm of capitals and generals, check out Linda Robinson's 'Tell Me How this Ends.'
