"On the Fence"
Nearly 100,000 US soldiers were deployed to Afghanistan at the height of the campaign, fighting the longest war in the nation's history. But what do Americans know about the land where this conflict is taking place? Many have come to have a grasp of the people, history, and geography of Iraq, but Afghanistan remains a mystery. Historian Brian Glyn Williams, who has traveled to Afghanistan frequently over the past decade, provides essential background to the war, tracing the rise, fall, and reemergence of the Taliban.
Roderick Gordon & Brian Williams' Tunnels rose from its fanatical underground following to become a New York Times bestseller. In this eagerly anticipated sequel, Will Burrows plunges ever deeper into the subterranean Colony to find his father. But while he searches, the ruling overclass known as the Styx plots to unleash a plague on Topsoilers. Can Will rescue his brethren from total annihilation? Or will he be too busy saving his own skin?
This fourth adventure finds Will Burrows deep in the “land of the second sun”, reunited with his long-lost father. While Will attempts to decode the cryptic messages scrawled across the land’s three mysterious temples, an army of darkness begins its march. And all the while, the Rebeccas continue their relentless pursuit of Will, determined to destroy him once and for all.
