Product Details


“Should be read by anyone who wants to understand why the war [in Afghanistan] is so hard.”—Dexter Filkins, The New York Times Book Review

“One of the best books yet written on the war in Afghanistan . . . filled with both vivid descriptions of the Afghan fighting and sound advice concerning how counterinsurgencies should be waged.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Should be must reading for President Obama—and for you. . . . Most of us really don’t give Afghanistan much thought. . . . Most of us don’t get it. If you read The Wrong War you will.”—USA Today
“As always, West’s greatest strengths are his exceptional personal courage and his experienced perception of combat. He anchors a narrative of failed policy in a set of battlefield stories that explains events with unusual clarity.”—The Washington Post
“West offers vivid accounts of the war from ground level and an unsparing analysis of the chances for U.S. success.”—Los Angeles Times
