“Former BBC journalist Loyn turns a gimlet eye on the war in Afghanistan, the longest in the history of the U.S… A well-executed and dispiriting study of imperial overreach and cultural collision.”–Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Distinguished by its granular detail and insider access, this is an authoritative study of where things went wrong.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
