2003 Iraq War book suggestions
I am looking for good books about the 2003 Iraq War that concentrates on the bigger picture. I'm not interested in books on individual units or soldiers. I'd like something that discusses the strategic plans, build up, initial attack, etc.

Also, it would be nice if the book were free of political bias in either direction.

Thank you for your suggestions.

I'm not sure of this one meets your exact request, but Saddam's Secrets by Georges Sada was an interesting read.

Thomas Ricks Fiasco is pretty good. Obviously has a bias but lays out a lot of inside baseball.

Cobra II, although it may be a little dated. It was written in 2006, but I remember it being very good.

Fiasco and The Gamble. Definitely an agenda but it's hard to argue with their conclusions. You can also read the official account, The US Army in the Iraq War

Thanks for the recommendations. I think I will read "Cobra II" first.

Not sure if this will fit into what you're looking for, but during the war, I loved reading Michael Yon's article. He was imbedded with a number of different units throughout Iraq and Afghanistan. LINK
