About the Book: Ghosts of Afghanistan: The Haunted Battleground
The definitive study of the wars in Afghanistan by the veteran reporter who has had exclusive access to all the key players over the last 30 years there from Gorbachev to Wiki Leaks.
Yes, there are dozens of books on the Afghan wars. Most of them are all about firefights and heroics. But this is the first to take the events of the war Bush and Blair started and put them in the context of the Soviet war and even the British imperial wars that preceded them, and draw the lessons out, and make a sharp summary of what should happen next. Ghosts of Afghanistan stands out for the combination of its calm clarity and comprehensibility, the firmness of its arguments, Steele's stature as an analyst of the region of 30 years standing, his position as the one UK journalist who had first access to the Wiki Leaks cache on Afghanistan, and his interpretation of what he found there.
