ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the possible interpretation of the U.S.-led Iraqi War of 2003 by war historian Stephen Ambrose. He would have likely been one of those talking heads on television comparing the rebuilding of Iraq to the Marshall Plan and America's restoration of Europe. Knowing what he did about the historic generosity of the U.S., Ambrose would have probably been angered by the criticisms of this country spoken by those who knew so much less. In his last years, Ambrose had become the most prominent of war historians, and as such he knew that there were no perfect victories. The personal triumph of his career was scarred toward the end by petty charges of plagiarism.
