    This book was such an eye opener. It is written by a professor who worked for the CIA and military in Afghanistan and traveled all over the country. It provides the first overview of America's war in this fascinating country. It also goes back in time to ancient and more recent conquests and compares Bush and Obama's wars with those of those Soviets for example. It is very edgy and filled with eyewitness travel accounts, photos, maps, history, geography, politics etc. A MUST read for those into combat in the war on terror and current events. I read it in just 3 days it was such a fast read!

    Good read

    Book was a bit slow in the beginning but picked up about 1/4 of the way with background info on the war torn country. Described the people of Aghanistan and the reasoning behind their lack of unity, struggle for power and corruption. Great info on the decades long struggle to separate itself from invading nations.

    This book reads like a spy novel only it is real. The author lived with Afghan warlords, worked in the country for the CIA, and even found a way to track down a pub built in Bin Laden's old compound in Kabul. But the real heart of the book is the author's cutting edge analysis of the course of the on-going war. Williams analyzes key battles and offensives, terrain, history, tribes, religion. If you want to know what 2,000 Americans have died for in this country, this easy read is a must. Very descriptive, and written by a professor with a speciality in the region who has risked his life to tell this story that all Americans need to know. It is very up to date and includes the killing of Bin Laden and Obama troop surge impact, Taliban reconquest of the south, not to mention and overview of the original 'light' invasion under Bush in 2001. Highly recommend this book for both generalists who are fascinated by this country and experts on the war who want more
