The war in Afghanistan was one of the longest and most expensive wars in recent history, far from the perceived "good war" that was portrayed in the earliest days of the battle.
Acclaimed war correspondent Jack Fairweather presents a full narrative of the war in Afghanistan in The Good War, from the 2001 invasion to the 2014 withdrawal, providing the story of how this good war turned bad. Including hundreds of interviews, previously unpublished archives and personal experiences, Fairweather explores the course of the conflict and how righteous intentions and hubris caused the West's strategy in Afghanistan to fail.
The Good War takes readers from the White House Situation Room to Afghan military outposts to insurgents dens, and offers an insight on how we must rethink 'good wars' in the future.
