'How we got to where we are in Afghanistan.''—Matthew Kaminski, Wall Street Journal
This definitive account of the American experience in Afghanistan ''[zeroes] in on what went awry after America’s successful routing of the Taliban in late 2001'' (Michiko Kakutani, New York Times) to explain how a growing sanctuary for insurgents in Pakistan and a collapsing government in Kabul catalyzed the Taliban resurgence.
Examining what has worked thus far—and what hasn’t—Jones lays out ''a blueprint for winning in a region that has historically brought mighty armies to their knees'' (Doug Childers, Richmond Times-Dispatch).
