Product description


Sandy Gall may be one of the last heroes of his profession * The Times * What makes this book stand out from all the other current writing about the war in Afghanistan is the depth of Sandy Gall's knowledge of the country and his intense sympathy for its people ... Anyone who wants to understand what is happening in Afghanistan cannot afford to ignore this book * Times Literary Supplement * A well-informed account of the litany of disastrous miscalculations that have befallen the West's involvement since the September 11 attacks * Daily Telegraph * It should be required reading for all cadets at Sandhurst and officers deploying to theatre [Afghanistan] including senior ones * General Lord Guthrie * Sandy's book is the first that covers the whole of the current conflict in Afghanistan. Warts and all, it is a compelling tale and most useful history * General Sir David Richards *
