Michael Yon’s new book should be required reading for every Member of Congress who votes on continued support for the war, and for every journalist who comments on the war. Very, very few reporters –if any– have been in Iraq in places like Mosul more than Yon, and the details he provides of the battles, the ups and downs, and now the turning of the tide are indispensable to understanding the stakes there.
