Bob Woodward's book on President Bush and the Iraq war will be the definitive account of the turning point in history as Bush, his war council and allies launched a pre-emptive attack, toppling Saddam Hussein and taking over the country. From in-depth interviews with key players and notes from national security meetings, Woodward provides a thoroughly original, authoritative narrative of the behind-the-scenes manoeuvring, examining the causes and consequences of the most controversial war since Vietnam. What emerges is an astonishingly intimate portrait of Bush, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, Donald Rumsfeld, the generals, the CIA and key foreign leaders ranging from Tony Blair to Vladimir Putin. This is the how and why of decision-making - the secret meetings, secure phone calls, strategies, dilemmas and raw emotions of war as it is rarely seen in contemporary history.
