For a century, the United States steadily accumulated a string of military triumphs. But since 1945 the onslaught of failures and stalemates in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan has exposed the country’s inability to change course after battlefield setbacks—with grave consequences for thousands of American soldiers and our allies. THE RIGHT WAY TO LOSE A WAR provocatively explains how America can draw failed campaigns to a close without compromising its core values through three specific steps—surge, talk, and leave. THE RIGHT WAY TO LOSE A WAR is an essential guidebook for life in an era of unwinnable conflicts, a book made necessary not only by Iraq and Afghanistan, but the future quagmires that may yet come.
