About the Author

Reviews

"In this fascinating book, author Sjursen asks some searching questions which may leave some of the US commanders feeling uncomfortable."-- "Books Monthly"
"Those interested in Operation Iraqi Freedom should read Sjursen's contribution to our collective understanding of the war from a tactical perspective. Scholars will find Ghost Riders of Baghdad a useful companion to more scholarly works on the war in Iraq. Yet most importantly, educators should use the book as an example for other veterans to follow. The experiences of soldiers shed ample light on the murkier parts of history--the areas where rhetoric and strategy are not always congruent--which future historians cherish when deliberating over soldier motivations, memory, and so on."-- "H-FedHist"
