Thomas E. Ricks will be in Chicago at the Pritzker Military Library to discuss this most recent book The Gamble: General David Petraeus and the American Military Adventure in Iraq, 2006-2008. The event will be free and open to the public.
Ricks is the author of the widely-acclaimed book Fiasco: The American Military Adventure in Iraq, e.g. this review.
Ricks is a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security.
Ricks has a blog, The Best Defense.
I hope to read The Gamble before the date, and I plan to attend the event.
I hope the weather is better than the downpour on the night that David Kilcullen spoke at the PML.

Perhaps a little Chicagoboyz confab could be arranged for right before or right after.
Agreed. Before won’t work. After would be good.
I will try and attend, too, but my schedule is always iffy and subject to last minute changes.
I will try to attend too
Saw the LeMay author not too long ago… I think it was John Callaway’s last public appearance too before he passed
What time is the event at? Do you call ahead for reservations? They did for LeMay just don’t know if that was the norm
