  • Early Notice: Thomas E. Ricks at the Pritzker Military Library on September 10, 2009.

    Posted by Chicago Boyz Archive on August 9th, 2009 (All posts by )

    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.

    2. Lexington Green Says:

      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.

      Saw the LeMay author not too long ago… I think it was John Callaway’s last public appearance too before he passed

    5. Carl from Chicago Says:

      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
