Summary
Avoiding a standard discussion of the politics behind the conflict, this thoroughgoing account of the war in the former Taliban state powerfully depicts the actual situation for those on the ground. Based on interviews from the front line in Afghanistan, this examination reveals how coalition forces are not simply keeping the peace but are currently involved in full-scale warfare with both al-Qaeda militants and the forces of the resurgent Taliban, fighting battles British forces have not experienced since Korea. Drawing from evidence provided by members of the 3rd Battalion, the 16th Air Assault Brigade, the Royal Marines, and the Special Forces community, this overview indicates that the hostilities these soldiers face have proven far greater than anticipated, and the situation in Afghanistan more serious than the politicians would like the public to realize
