Summary
In this sweeping account of a war brought by well-intentioned American leaders against an enemy they barely understood, and could not truly engage, Gall argues that Pakistan fueled the Taliban and protected Osama bin Laden for the entire duration of the American invasion and occupation
Summary
Describes the toll taken on the U.S., Afghanistan, and Pakistan since the September 11 attacks through ordinary citizens' accounts of fighting and first-hand descriptions from Taliban warlords, intelligence thugs, American generals, and Afghani politicians
