This is a revealing treatise on the Afghan conflict. I heard it read by the author on cd, and it was riveting. He discribes the sparse and dangerous conditions, the seemingly barbaric rites for incoming and outgoing troops, the reasons for enlistment, and the likelihood of coming back alive. He gives reasons for PTSD, provides insight into returning with difficulties in assimilation. IT was a landmark work, and I am grateful for the education.
