General Micheal Delong was written well, and I learned some things that I would probably not have gotten elsewhere but the book has some major issues. Even accounting for the fact that this book was published in , there are some facts that the author, either was very creative in truth, or deliberately lying or somehow been misinformed.
Of course I am reading this and looking back in hindsight, but there are some falsehoods that do not match up, some opinions that are suspect. I wonder if others who have read, are reading, or are about to read this book will see the same. I do not want to give examples for two reasons.
Overall I liked the book but just found some parts hard to swallow. I recommend anyone interested in the modern military to read this book. Aug 13, Austin rated it it was amazing.

Then they said that the collateral damage is big, this is saying that even though they thought that they were only gonna kill that one person they killed many more people that did not deserve to be killed. In this book Michael DeLong used the style informative. He uses this because he is telling people about Iraq and Afghanistan so this helps for everyone to understand about the war. I think the style is very effective because it allows people to understand a lot better on what is happening with the people that are protecting their country. I really liked reading Inside CentCom because I really do like reading books about the military.
I liked this book because it explained really good about how they handled things in Iraq and Afghanistan. The only thing I think I would change about this book is I think they should have included how they traveled over seas to Iraq and Afghanistan.
