When novelist and former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson traveled to Afghanistan for an embed with the 101st Airborne Division, he found great soldiers - and a seemingly hopeless mission. This is the gripping non-fiction tale of how the United States is spending $100 billion a year on a war that even the men on the front lines can't explain.

This is a point of view from the writer on his views from the front lines. I can concur with some of these views from my own personal experiences, but I don't write as well as he does.
I've gotten hooked on Alex Berenson's work and have been cranking through his books. I didn't see that this was a short book and was ready to send it back when I saw it was only 45 minutes. But it really caught me from the beginning so I stuck with it and felt I got a lot out of the first person perspective of what it's like to be there. I only wish it was a lot longer. I would have listened to it for hours.
I'd recommend paying cash for it and saving your credit for a more expensive book. Worth a listen all the same.
