Publisher's Summary

In 2006 a British peace-keeping force was sent to Helmand province in southern Afghanistan. Within weeks they were cut off and besieged by the Taliban. Here, in their own words and for the first time, are the young veterans of Herrick 4- alongside the words of the Taliban themselves. Fergusson examines the war in Helmand and asks this most troubling question: could Britain have avoided the violence altogether?

    Story
    "Interesting story, told by an android."
    What didn’t you like about Joe Dunlop’s performance?

    Well spoken and easy to understand but painfully, painfully wooden.


    Any additional comments?

    A very important story but sounds like it was read by a text-to-speech app.

    Story
    "Tough stuff, and a must listen"

    I had no idea just how complex an engagement this book scratches the surface of, and would encourage anyone else, who like me has only a rough idea of what is going on as informed by media headlines, listen to this.
    Well presented engaging stories, illustrating some of the complexities and contradictions of NATO in Afghanistan.
