No Good Men Among the Living: America, the Taliban, and the War through Afghan Eyes

By: Anand Gopal

Is a thought provoking and unique perspective on America's "war on terror" and tells the life story of individuals living through the US invastion of Afghanistan. It brings to light just how much the United States has contributed to the dire situation that persists in that country.

A must read for anyone wanting to understand the United States of America's military adventures in foreign countries.
Told through the lives of three Afghans, the stunning tale of how the United States had triumph in sight in Afghanistan―and then brought the Taliban back from the dead...

....Through their dramatic stories, Gopal shows that the Afghan war, so often regarded as a hopeless quagmire, could in fact have gone very differently. Top Taliban leaders actually tried to surrender within months of the US invasion, renouncing all political activity and submitting to the new government. Effectively, the Taliban ceased to exist―yet the Americans were unwilling to accept such a turnaround. Instead, driven by false intelligence from their allies and an unyielding mandate to fight terrorism, American forces continued to press the conflict, resurrecting the insurgency that persists to this day.
With its intimate accounts of life in war-torn Afghanistan, Gopal's thoroughly original reporting lays bare the workings of America's longest war and the truth behind its prolonged agony.
