Product Description

Sandy Gall set off for Afghanistan on what turned out to be the hardest assignment of his life. During his career as a reporter he had covered plenty of wars and revolutions before, but he had never been required to walk all the way to an assignment and all the way back, dodging Russian bombs en route. But this was precisely what happened as he and a television crew walked from Pakistan to the Panjsher Valley-a journey that took two weeks. Their goal was the stronghold of the Resistance leader Masud who, although only twenty-eight years old, was the best known and most effective of the Afghan guerrillas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 18 Mar 1998

I have to commend Mr. Gall for a fine, well written account of a reporter's travels throughout Afghanistan during the war. I enjoyed this book very much.
2.0 out of 5 stars Journalistic claptrap! 24 Aug 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com

I just kept reading...right until the end. Mr. Gall made something so complex...sound so interesting. I couldn't have found this book more enjoyable.
