Mosul Mire

Three weeks after Iraqi Forces launched their attack on Mosul, the troops are bogged down in the predicted urban quagmire.  This is a far cry from 7th November 1918 when Ali Ihsan Pasha surrendered Mosul following a 2 week military operation and secret negotiations with Colonal Gerald Leachman, who subsequently became a most succesful governor of Mosul.
