Publisher's Summary

For eight months in 2008, US Army Capt. Matt Zeller served as an embedded combat adviser with the Afghan security forces in Ghazni, Afghanistan. Watches Without Time is a compilation of the emails and letters he sent home to family and friends during that period - so that, as he writes in the preface, "should anything have ever happened to me, they would know what I went through." Watches Without Time gives a granular and gripping account of the tough challenges that Zeller and his men encountered in Ghazni and of the very complex missions they accomplished there. Written in clear and searingly intimate prose, it also highlights the many trials and emotion-laden experiences he underwent throughout his tour and after returning to the United States. Zeller takes his readers with him on an emotional journey that will lead many to share the anger he felt at the many ways in which he saw the war being mismanaged while stirring increased admiration for the soldiers tasked with conducting that war on the very difficult terrain of Afghanistan. Watches Without Time has a foreword by former assistant secretary of state for Near East affairs Amb. Edward S. ("Ned") Walker. It gives the listener a realistic, heartwarming, and terrifying look at the challenges the US military faced in Afghanistan and the strain the war has placed on many US soldiers.
