Every War Must End
Fred Charles Ikle
2ndPublisher: Columbia University PressFormat: Paperback
“Mission accomplished,” George Bush famously proclaimed in reference to the defeat of Saddam Hussein's military organization. However, as recent events in Iraq have once again demonstrated, it is much easier to start a war than it is to end it. Every War Must End, which Colin Powell credits in his autobiography as shaping his thinking on how to end the first Gulf War, analyzes the many critical obstacles to ending a war - an aspect of military strategy that is frequently and tragically overlooked. Ikle considers examples from twentieth-century history, including the Allied policy in Germany and Japan after World War II. In the new preface to his classic work, Ikle explains how U.S. military strategy and tactics have delayed, and indeed jeopardized, a successful end to hostilities in Iraq.
