summary
This book analyzes Dutch military operations in the aftermath of the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq. Unlike troops elsewhere, Dutch forces in the Al Muthanna province met with little resistance, and the notion of a superior “Dutch approach” is now widespread. Using previously classified documents and archive materials, the authors challenge this idea by detailing tactical operations and contextualizing the Dutch actions within the larger experiences of the coalition forces. Ultimately, the authors argue that the success of Al Muthanna was due to the overall conditions and not a unique Dutch strategy
