  • On Oct 17 2016 Tom Copeland (USCG) read this book and commented:

    Interesting reading a later edition with a preface that talks about changes since it was written. This reminded me of "War at the Top of the World" by Eric Margolis when it talked about how demanding just staying in, let alone fighting in, Afghanistan is.
