When novelist and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson traveled to Afghanistan for an embed with the 101st Airborne Division, he found great soldiers, and a seemingly hopeless mission. This is the gripping nonfiction tale of how the United States is spending $100 billion a year on a war that even the men on the front lines can’t explain.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The suite of stories he goes on to tell—of combat, of corruption, of ‘hearts and minds’—depict a lost war, feeding on itself in a land with a history of swallowing invaders whole. But it’s the immediacy of Berenson’s writing that insists, right now, that ‘it is worth asking what all this blood and treasure is buying.’”

    " This short piece on the war in Afghanistan does not really contain any new information. Berenson is embedded with a unit and reports on the problems they face. For anyone up to date on the happenings, this covers familiar territory. "
