 Afghan Journal is a Must-Read for Anyone Who Cares About the Afghanistan War

A very thoughtful and thought-provoking soldier's-eye-view of what US troops are actually accomplishing in Afghanistan - and the challenges that keep us from accomplishing more. A more introspective look at a soldier's life in a remote area of Afghanistan, this book isn't about bloody battles. Instead, it considers the human side of military life, the impact of winning Afghan "hearts-and-minds" while simultaneously trying to defeat Taliban terrorists, and frustration with military mindset and tactics that don't always seem to align with mission goals.

It's instructive for people who don't have deep background in military - and is easy to read, because the format is entirely written as a series of "blog-like" entries. I'd like to see this on library shelves across America - as a historical reference for future generations.
