In June 2010, journalist Michael Hastings broke the gathering media silence about the conflict in Afghanistan with his stunning Rolling Stone article "The Runaway General." This detailed-packed piece not only set off a storm of controversy; it eventually led to the resignation of General Stanley McChyrstal. In The Operators, Hastings explores the planning and conduct of this long-fought war. In exclusive, behind-the-scenes reportage from Afghanistan, Europe, the Middle East, and Washington, he probes beneath the surface of official statements and public platitudes. Certain to make its own headlines.
