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.

Book Description The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From interviews with his numerous contacts among the coalition forces stationed in Afghanistan, Mike Ryan has done what journalists have so far been unable to do. Battlefield Afghanistan is the first thorough-going account of the war in the former Taliban state: not the politics behind the conflict, but the actual situation for the men on the ground. Far from simply keeping the peace, coalition forces in Afghanistan are currently involved in full-scale warfare with both al-Qaeda militants and the forces of the resurgent Taliban. Battlefield Afghanistan tells the real, inside story of the men under fire, based upon first-hand evidence from members of 3 Para, 16 Air Assault Brigade, the Royal Marines and the Special Forces community, together with the views and experiences of the US and French troops. As their accounts indicate, the hostilities faced have proved to be far greater than was anticipated, and the situation in Afghanistan far more serious than the politicians would like the public to realise.
