This review is from: No Worse Enemy: The Inside Story of the Chaotic Struggle for Afghanistan (Hardcover)
I am not usually into war books , but I have often wondered what is really going on in Afghanistan today and this book summarises the shoe situation perfectly. It's a must read- it submerges you into the true reality of the conflict ! The style is original and eye opening as the brave journalist Ben Anderson who follows, for weeks and months on end, the US Marines and British soldiers as they carry out the biggest military operations. He's right there when people are getting killed around him, risking his life again and again. Because he is right there on the frontline, he sees what's really happening, from all angles. This gives you a broad insight into how difficult it has been for the fighting troops- and how terrifying it is for the innocent local people. Truly gripping, clever and compassionately written the book takes you through all the emotions. I'm reading it again already.
