'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.
