Rick Francona, has done a great job in taking a complex issue such as Iraqi
affairs and crafted it into an informative and enjoyable book.
Ally To Adversary is quite unique in the fact that it appeals to a variety of sectors of readers. It will appeal to experts in Middle East politics for its unique insights into the history behind the war. It will also appeal to veterans who can relate to the author`s experiences, and 'civilians', such as my self, will find it an informative resource to follow ongoing events, as well as a unique insight into the military world we rarely get to see.
I believe that this book is a must-read for anyone that is interested in the politcal status of the Middle East leading up to the Gulf War. It is a well-written chronicle which tells the story of Iraq/US relations from a true insiders perspective. In reading the book I was intrigued by the true "human" touch the author imparted unto the events.
