Description

Every year in Afghanistan, after winter has passed and the opium poppies have been harvested, local men re-emerge to confront the latest foreign 'invader' and the fighting season begins again.

The soldier's experience is full of contrasts. From the thrill of adventure in a vast open country to the frustration of being withdrawn from action by behind-the-scenes bureaucrats; from watching a friend fall victim to a suicide bomber to being charmed by ordinary people caught in the conflict. Fighting Season is a no-holds-barred account that will change the reader's view of the Afghan campaign and offers a true perspective on the West's ability to fight terrorism and promote democracy in foreign lands.
