Bush at War, part the fourth

Charlie has it on good authority that Bob Woodward is working on a fourth installment in his Bush at War series, with at least a portion of it focusing on the turn-around in Anbar province. Charlie is anxious to see how Woodward's narrative plays out. The "Anbar Awakening" is a story that has legs well beyond Iraq in 2007 and has implications for both our Iraq exit strategy ("bottom up reconciliation") as well as how we evaluate our prospects for exploiting local fissures and countering Al Qaeda-style local governance in the future.

Anyone know of any other books in the pipeline about the last couple years of the War?
