Product description

Critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Ben Anderson (Panorama and Dispatches) provides a gripping account of the frontline in Helmand province, Afghanistan, and details how it has descended into a quagmire, with ever-increasing levels of violence and confusion. Including interviews with military top brass, from commanding officers to General Petreaus himself, this book reveals the disturbing chasm between official rhetoric and the situation on the ground.
