    The explosive first-hand account of America's secret history in Afghanistan. With the publication of Ghost Wars, Steve Coll became not only a Pulitzer Prize winner, but also the expert on the rise of the Taliban, the emergence of Bin Laden, and the secret efforts by CIA officers and their agents to capture or kill Bin Laden in Afghanistan after 1998.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Ghost Wars the most enjoyable?

    great story telling, accurate and abundant information, unbiased reporting.


    What aspect of Malcolm Hillgartner’s performance would you have changed?

    the russian helicopter in the book is a Mil-17, through out the read, he reads it as an MiG 17. for someone with a decent military hardware background, it drove me nuts. couple of other similar misuse of technical terms.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    glitches in the recording, skipped lines and sentences. could be a bad burn to CD...
