I had to stop reading around 1/10th of the volume. This book is the most boring I ever tried to read by this writer. A real brick ! I love his writing but the unnecessary condensation of encyclopedic facts, names, dates (he did enormous amount of research for sure) makes it tough to read. There's no action for the first 100 pages, nothing original and with rather predictable ending.

Enjoyed this book very much. A good story that gives real insights into what may have gone on behind the scenes in the first Gulf war. The main character is used by the author in a later book called The Afghan.
