The American War in Afghanistan

A History

Carter Malkasian

  • The first authoritative history of the entire American war in Afghanistan, which is now the longest conflict in US history
  • Covers all of the sides in the conflict in depth, drawing from his own unmatched expertise and a wide variety of sources
  • Written by an ideal author for the subject: a leading academic authority on Afghanistan, a former senior advisor to the US military commander in Afghanistan and then to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, and a former civilian official working in the countryside in one of the most difficult provinces
