Résumé
After a series of disastrous missteps in its conduct of the war, the White House in 2006 appointed General David Petraeus as the Commanding General of the coalition forces. Tell Me How This Ends is an inside account of his attempt to turn around a failing war. On the ground in Iraq, with General Petraeus and his commanders, the author of the "New York Times" bestseller "Masters of Chaos" reports on the endgame of this controversial war.
