Failing State. Successful Cover-ups.,
This review is from: No Worse Enemy: The Inside Story of the Chaotic Struggle for Afghanistan (Kindle Edition)
Ben Anderson follows both the British Army and the American Marines through some of the most dangerous areas in Afghanistan as they attempt to bring stability to the region. Anderson seems to become a confessor for the troops - and the truths they reveal are both shocking and saddening. Many say how they feel that they have been forgotten by their home countries, and that the real war in Afghanistan is being covered up by the media and governments who are desperate to show a stabilising country instead of one falling further into war. No Worse Enemy is a stark portrayal of the Afghanistan war that leaves you with the realisation of how little you know about what is really happening out there. An excellent piece of reportage, for both soldiers and civilians alike.
