"Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan was by far the best single account of the Afghan mire. Yet Afghanistan is only one of the conflicts unleashed by the U.S. and Western interventions in the 'War on Terror.' Scott Horton has now given us Enough Already: Time to End the War on Terrorism, a masterly history of these chaotic, tragic and above all futile conflicts, ranging with his usual excoriating accuracy from Mali to Pakistan, from Iraq to Yemen by way of Libya and Syria. Millions are dead, disabled or languish desperately far from their homes as the direct result of our blunders, bewilderment and outright malicious stupidity. Thousands of our own soldiers have died or are disabled. Hundreds more of our citizens have died in the U.S. and Europe in what Horton calls the 'backdraft' of our disastrous actions. Ignore the self-serving memoirs or grandiose academic tomes; if you read only one book on the so-called 'War on Terror,' this must be that book." — Frank Ledwidge, former Royal Navy Reserve intelligence officer, "Justice Advisor" to the UK Mission in Afghanistan's Helmand Province and author of Investment in Blood
