Colonel Peter Mansoor, Executive Officer to the Commanding General, Multi-National Force-Iraq (2007-08); Chair of Military History, Ohio State University; Author, Baghdad at Sunrise


Mansoor led the first Army brigade during the initial stages of the U.S. invasion of Iraq. He was uniquely positioned to gain a firsthand, up-close view of what went right and what went wrong as the U.S. increased its presence in the region. His work gives us a detailed analysis of the operation and the lessons that military and political leaders should have learned.
