Dexter Filkins…remarkable…The Wrong War amounts to a crushing and seemingly irrefutable critique of the American plan in Afghanistan. It should be read by anyone who wants to understand why the war there is so hard. The strength of West's book is the legwork he's done…West shows in the most granular, detailed way how and why America's counterinsurgency in Afghanistan is failing. And, in the places where the effort is showing promise, he demonstrates why we don't have the resources to duplicate that success on a wider scale.
