    Default Dave Petraeus's dissertation...

    is well worth the reading. To what extent this 1987 tome (well researched and with some interesting interviews he did) still influences his worldview is something on which I won't speculate. GEN McChrystal's initial report and subsequent request for more troops are consistent with the conclusions of the 1987 thesis.
