5.0 out of 5 stars
An excellent read, 8 Jan 2014
A wonderfully sourced and written story of a tragic political and military blunder. The main characters, in this retelling, are all fully described with attributes and failings detailed as is the impact of their decisions and actions on the outcome of this misadventure.
All through the story is the backdrop of Afghanistan with wonderful descriptions of its beautiful yet harsh geography.
