I’m a big fan of maps. When I read something, or watch something, I often have a map out handy for continual reference. I’m sharing the maps from the book early, allowing your mind to shape the battlefield. These maps are mine, and mine alone, so the lack of spatial accuracy is what it is. A note on maps and names – places often have multiple names and methods of spelling them. I recommend you don’t get wrapped around the axle over it.

Map 1: Diyala

Map 2: Northeast Baghdad
