This will give you an idea of the crazy situation US soldiers face in Afghanistan, told by the author who spent 5 months embedded with a single Army company. You will hear how desperate their lives can be and how the war is being fought on several fronts with very equivocal results. There is not a lot of discussion of the bigger geopolitical situation; you see a company and the soldiers in it fight day to day in a strategic Afghan valley, where death can strike at any time. I highly recommend this book if you want to better understand this war, as well as what war in general does to people who fight.
